    NAUI not accepted in JP?

    Hi guys,

    I'm new to the forum, and was considering getting my NAUI cert. However I'v heard that some places in Japan and Australia don't accpet it. Please read this post if you could let us here what you have to say.

    As for NAUI in Japan, I looked at NAUI's web site and they have an article that says they've been in Japan since 1970: NAUI Worldwide Search

    There are also a number of shops that are NAUI: NAUI Scuba Diving and Instructor Courses in English, Kumamoto Japan, diving tours and NAUI training

    So given that, I would say that yes, NAUI is honorable in Japan.

    I once saved a man in Wichita just to watch him dive...(inventor)

    People who look good with a mask on are usually ugly without one.

    NAUI is accepted in Japan. I cannot imagine which shop would not; but if they don't accept NAUI or have never heard of NAUI... look else where. It speaks more about the shop's professionalism and understand of the industry than about NAUI.

    I haven't been everywhere for diving yet in Japan, but I'd say that the vast majority know what NAUI is and you'll have no problems. To be politely honest, the biggest barrier you'll probably face is language if you're not a Japanese speaker.
