We were booked for a trial dive through another company who was helping us organize our time in Yakushima. We had a fantastic time. Unfortunately, there was bad weather on the day of our planned dive and we had to cancel due to water conditions. The guides were very helpful and provided us alternative dates and suggested some good options based on the tide timings. The guide spoke great English and was able to get us comfortable with the gear as this was our first dive. Overall, the experience was really good, but what really made it 5 star was 1) the diligence of the guide on explaining everything and making us comfortable 2) when our go-pro broke mid-way through the dive, he had his own that he used and made a video for us to capture this memory and 3) how well thought out the plan was given it was winter time and water temperature was 19 degrees Celcius. Overall, it was a great experience and I would highly recommend to anyone else considering going (even during non summer months).

Great first diving experience. Very good friendly diving instructor who speaks English very well. Everything was explained in the smallest detail. We felt very safe and prepared for our first dive. We saw some amazing underwater scenes. It was an amazing experience in and out of the water.

On our honeymoon in Japan we went for a scuba dive in the Yakushima sea. For my wife it even was her first scuba dive ever.

Thanks to Kei we had a great time!! Amazed by the beautiful nature and species that the ocean has to offer.

Kei was a great instructor. We would say one of the best you can find. He explains everything and takes time. No rush, just relax (and keep breathing) 😉. Really good especially when you go diving the first time!

The first dive was so beautiful and fun that we asked Kei if we could go for another dive the next morning. We could, yay! And on that second dive we even encountered a sea turtle 🐢from a very short distance, it was just eating, not bothered by or afraid of us. We also saw 🐡🐠🐟🦐, and even a 🦑 which changed colour, and lots of blue and orange seastars and other surprising creatures like the sea snake.

Thanks Kei, we will keep these 2 dives in our memory and heart for the rest of our lives. As we would say in Oranda: you are a true “Kei” of a person - which means you are a great person that you can always rely on.

Kayak and diving with Kei さん!He is so nice and professional. We had a lot of fun when kayaking. He teached us to make a frame with wood and leaves. For diving, I am Aow, the water temperature is 23°c. Kei gave me a 3mm hood vest and 5mm wetsuit. Thanks to him I didn't feel cold at all. We communicated by magnetic board under water. I'm so moved that Kei emailed me a super detail dive log what we saw everything down there. Hope to come to Yakushima in future and see you again.

This is the first time I went diving and it couldn‘t have been better! Kei, my guide, took time to explain everything important before the actual diving and we first practiced breathing underwater in the shallow water. So I felt quite confident when we then set out.
I was able to see plenty of different fish and even a sea turtle! Kei showed me all kinds of other sea creatures as well, like sea cucumber and moray eel. The underwater world is truly very special. I also got pictures of me underwater as a souvenir.
Definitely a very memorable experience that I can highly recommend to everyone!

Honestly the day I spent kayaking and snorkeling was one the best days of my life. I spent the morning kayaking along the river in Miyanoura, taking in the stunning surroundings. It was so relaxing and serene, it felt like myself and Kei, my guide, were the only people in the world. Kei provided a small jar for me to fill with sand and rocks to remind me of my time on Yakushima and it is something I will always treasure. After lunch at a lovely little cafe we went snorkeling at Isso Beach, which is beautiful. I had never been snorkeling before and now i've managed to set the bar very high! It was amazing watching all the sea life around me and I was very lucky and saw 3 sea turtles!
I want to thank Kei so much, he is a really excellent guide! I really enjoyed talking to him all day :)

My girlfriend and I simply loved diving at Isso Beach with Kei from Kaiolohia. He was very friendly, calm and respectful.
He answered all our question with a lot of useful information. Picked up at our accommodation, everything was taking cared of.
I would loved to do it again!!

We went snorkelling to the Isso-Beach, guided by Mr Nakamura of the Marine Club Kaiolohia. His knowledge of Seelife is extensive, which fascinated our 10-year-old son. That was the first snorkelling for him, though he felt very comfortable thanks to the professional guide. Most exciting moment was as we met some turtles swimming.
very much recommended!

We had a wonderful morning kayaking with Kiyoko, she was wonderful with us and we had a great time.
You can tell how much she loves Yakushima and she explained us many things about the nature around us.
We were lucky enough to spot some monkeys while kayaking and she took us to a fantastic little beach where we spent some time swimming.
We really loved that morning!

It was a very fun and moving experience. As a beginner couple, we knew nothing, but they taught us everything from how to use the oars to how to snorkel. The coffee that the guide brewed for us on the sandbar during the kayak was also delicious! We were also thrilled to encounter a sea turtle, which we had given up on!
