We did the OWD certification with Jan, and it was a wonderful experience from start to end. We went during Golden Week and had a hard time finding accommodation; Jan went out of his way to inquire around and finally secured a room at a quaint and so very hospitable pension close by. He also did a great job in... More

Jan was awesome, obviously very knowledgeable about diving. He was a terrific teacher, going above and beyond what he was required to teach by PADI and making sure that we had everything down before moving on. His straightforward attitude towards teaching also went a long way towards calming my nerves. Which isn't to say he was strict -- he was... More

I made my rescue diver course at the piranha diver shop. The owner Jan is very kind. He speaks english and he is very professional. The diving gear was good and i didn't have to complain about it. Every thing was fine. It was an excellent trip.

I was lucky to have taken the Open Water Diver course with Piranha. Jan (the instructor) has all the knowledge and capability to clearly explain all the required skills and answer questions in detail. As it happens when learning goes well, I could see myself progress every day through the 3-day course. Frankly, I can't wait to go back and... More

Jan was an excellent teacher and did a great job introducing me and my partner to diving for the first time. We were both nervous, but he is obviously safety- oriented and very experienced, and I had a wonderful time! We got our scuba diver certification, and I will definitely continue diving from here on out. I'm really glad I... More

I completed the advanced open water course with Piranha divers last week. I can`t praise Jan highly enough as an instructor, he has the rare combination of being both easy going and passionate about his craft. As such you have the benefit of learning some core techniques at a pace you are comfortable with. The equipment is new and of... More

I did recuse diver course with Jan, which is a very unforgetable experience. Jan works by himself and in his shop everything is very well managed. The course took 2days, whenever me or my classmate raise up any questions, Jan would explain into detail, he always shares his ideas which you can see are very practical. We spent a great... More

As many note on here, Piranha Divers is the only way to dive the USS Emmons if you are a tourist in Japan. This is a dive for advanced divers because of the depth and Jan does a very good job of putting safety first. The wreck itself is amazing, a must for any wreck diving enthusiast. Jan uses excellent... More

We did 2 dives of the USS Emmons and Jan was fantastic. He prompt, well organized and knew what he was doing. He was very easy going and made sure we were comfortable. The dive was amazing. It is a deep dive but still plenty of time to take in all of the elements. For a smaller shop he had... More

Jan is a great guide. The equipment is good - nice wings and fins. A good relaxed place to dive. Thanks.
