Ola, Hello, Oi, Sawadee khrap, Konnichiwa!!
I was born in Shizuoka, the home of Mt.Fuji (I haven't climbed it yet though). I moved to Tokyo when I was 18years old and stayed there for 12years.
Deciding to leave Japan at the age of 31, I moved to Australia. That was the biggest change I had ever experienced and it made my life totally different to what it had been. I lived, hung out, studied, played, and worked with the people from all over the world. Those are the most precious moments of my life so far.
In Australia, I studied Marine Tourism in a college in Freemantle, Western Australia. That is when I started diving. I also worked as a deckhand on a sailing boat and a barista in a busy cafe near the world-famous Manly beach in New South Wales.
After four years in Australia, I left and traveled for six months in South and North America, then headed back to Japan in March 2011, right after the earthquake.
After coming back to Japan, I came to Okinawa straight away to start my career as a scuba diver.
Having worked for three years as a diver, I started my own shop in July 2014.
Complementary to my own overseas experience, it is now my turn to introduce Japan from here in Okinawa to people from all over the world.
Meeting up with people is the best thing anyone can do in a lifetime. I would like to meet and get to know as many people from all over the world as possible. And I would also like to help them to get to know, see and experience Japan.
I am here to share and enjoy every moment, with you, not only underwater, but also topside in friendly, beautiful Okinawa.
See you soon!!

I’m Satomi from Japan.
I was born in Saitama which was located right next to Tokyo.
When I was 18 years old I went to a vocational school for 2 years to become a diving instructor. And after getting certified, I moved to Okinawa and worked at a local dive shop for about 2 years.
In the meantime, I had a dream when I became an instructor, which was working as a diving instructor overseas. So I decided to go to Australia.
In Australia I worked at GBR in Cairns as an instructor for 1 year and also worked in a farm. And I traveled the country as well and while doing it, I met many beautiful people, talked and hung out, worked together, etc. Everything was new to me and I had amazing experiences in my life.
After spending two years in Australia, I came back to Japan then returned to Okinawa again.
I would like to show you this beautiful sea of Okinawa and share great moments underwater with you.
Let’s go diving with us!!!!!!!
