A mainland Japanese tourist drowned Friday as he tried to swim from Tokashiki Island to an uninhabited island nearby.
Keiji Yoshida’s body was found in the water off a Tokashiki Island beach about 5:30 p.m. A diving school employee found the 23-year-old Yoshida on the sea bottom. Police say Yoshida, who was visiting Okinawa from Fukuyama in Hiroshima Prefecture, had drowned while trying to swim with a friend to a small island about 600 meters from Tokashiki Island.
Officials say Yoshida was taken to a local clinic, where he was pronounced dead. His swimming companion was uninjured.
