Diving in Chubu

Although mostly mountainous land, the Chubu region lies between two major diving areas, the Izu and Kii Peninsulas. There are several great inland dive sites to explore, including Lake Motosu, Japan’s most popular freshwater diving spot. Here you can see peculiar terrain created by the lava flow of an old eruption. Rare drift diving is found on Nagara River, where yellow-spotted band fish, black bass, small catfish, turtles, and shrimp are common sights, but most come to see the world’s largest amphibian, the Japanese giant salamander.
