Mikimoto's Ama Divers

Diving display at Mikimoto Pearl Island in Toba

 By Cathy Cawood   Jul 14, 2015

Every day there are eight diving displays by the Ama divers at Mikimoto Pearl Island. The first one is held at 9:20 am and the final one at 4:20 pm. When I was there, the tide was low, and the water was shallow enough to see the white costumed divers moving around below the water. For a small extra charge, visitors can watch from a special viewing room while listening to a commentary in their choice of language. The haunting whistle that Ama divers use for breath control is a sound you will never forget!
