Dive in the water together with an Ama free-diving woman and witness how she harvests shellfish or seaweed from the rocky bottom. Ama divers are powerful and heartwarming women. The number of Ama divers have been decreasing. The situation is same as in Mie and there are about 800 Ama divers in Mie as of 2014. That number is the most largest in Japan. She will guide you the world under the sea.
Diving itself takes about 45 mins. 1 Ama diver will accompany a group of maximum 3-4 guests. If you are 5 guests, 2 Ama divers will accompany your group.
Please note that in case of bad weather like heavy windy weather and high wave, diving cannot be conducted. In that case, instead of diving, participants will have a rare chance to visit real Ama Hut which is still used for the local professional ama divers, have Ama's hand-made Onigiri rice ball and grilled seafood incl 1 Lobster or Abalone and will have a special gift of Ama diver's water glass. In that case, please let us know if you have any allergies or any other restrictions.
