    Is this the place for Okinawa divers?

    Sure, we're part of Asia, but shouldn't it be Northwest Pacific? Any thoughts? Anyone else on here dive Okinawa? Is this thing on?

    I know I"ve seen some other folks post from japan... Like Bill is from there: http://forum.scubatoys.com/member.php?u=368 So if you guys from there let me know if we need a new cataqory for location, I'll add it if necessary.

    One of my old instructorys was a lt. colonel that just retired, and he was in japan for the last 4 years or so, and said the diving was great near him. Of course, he learned to dive in the notrh sea, then was in texas.... so just about anything would seem great!

    He ran a dive club for the military guys and had a bunch of fun diving there.

    Welcome to the board! I'm sure you'll bump into more folks from there if you hunt around!

    Sorry... I see it's been a month since you posted this :-) You're right though. Okinawa is so far from "mainland" Japan that it really should almost have it's own classification. It actually costs more for ticket from Tokyo to Okinawa than it does to Manila! From what I've heard it's also different diving there. Much more of a tropical location. No one would ever claim the Tokyo/Yokohama area is "tropical" :-)) Okinawa is definitely on my list of places I want to dive before I leave Japan :-)
