welcome! I'm Kawahara, the representative of Yakushima Diving Guide [Dream Comfort]. Our store was opened in April 2013. Since being registered as a World Heritage Site in 1993, Yakushima has been crowded with many tourists every year. Yakushima has other attractions besides mountains, that is the sea. I want more and more people to see the sea and enjoy it. It would be great if you could become a "dreamy feeling" in the sea of Yakushima, just as you were impressed by the encounter with Jomon cedar.

I still remember how I felt when I fell in love with the mountains. Every day I was excited to see a map of the mountains at home. Every day I was grinning at the mountain ridge on my way home from work. Not only the scenery you meet when you climb the mountain, but also the conversations and various facial expressions with the people you meet. The deliciousness of the food you eat in the mountains and the comfort of taking a bath from the mountains. I just thought I liked "mountains". Those who want to start mountain climbing from now on. What is mountain climbing? Those who are wondering. (Some people like mountains too much!) Let's walk the mountains of Yakushima together.
