    Smile Coming to Tokyo!

    Hello
    I'm going to Tokyo on vacation from May 18th until May 29th and was wondering about the possibility of diving while I'm there. Can anyone give any advice or would anyone care to join me?

    Thanks for your help.

    The water is still kind of chilly in May here. I don't have dives planned in that time frame yet, but it's possible that our club might go during the memorial day weekend. What part of Tokyo will you be staying in? It's about a 3 hour drive to the dive sites from the Tokyo area. The sites we usually freqent are Izu Ocean Park (IOP), Kumomi, Ugusu, Ita, and Futo. IOP has an underwater mail box that is actually part of the Japanese postal system. They have a mail man pick up the u/w mail once a week or so. Kumomi is probably my favorite, but it's LONG drive. They have some great rock formations with some awesome swim throughs. Prices are pretty expensive though. A two tank dive is usually about $60 then there are tolls and gas. Equipment rental is stupid expensive here, I'm not quite sure why. Let me know if you have any other questions.

    I understand that he has been bitten by dogfish.
