Ishibashi

Ishibashi is very close to the center of the city, so you can dive on a day trip and do more than 3 dives in one day. This site is a beach entry only. The entry is via a slope, and a rocky area opens up as you descend. After swimming about 100 meters offshore, you will come to a wide sandy beach.

From winter to spring, there are many dandelion fish and some individuals with ringed patterns that can only be seen in the first few days of life. Nudibranchs are also seen in great numbers. Frogfish can be observed all year round. You can also see catsharks and glass gobies.
