Ishigaki Island scores big with dive communities

Date Posted: 2006-04-15

Ishigaki Island has the best diving opportunities in Japan.

The glories of Ishigaki rippled through the halls of the Tokyo Maritime Fair over the weekend, where thousands active in diving gathered to talk about the sport. Ishigaki was voted the best dive location in Japan for the sixth consecutive year.

Some 14,000 people cast ballots in the survey conducted by a diving magazine publishing company, and Ishigaki ranked at the top of the list. Three of the remaining top five dive locations in the country were also in Okinawa.

Ishigaki also picked up the votes for having the best resort hotel or best resort area.

The Tokyo Marine Fair, held in Ikebukuro, attracted thousands of divers, but also hundreds of companies looking for the divers’ business. This year’s fair introduced overseas diving, resort information and tourism opportunities.
