The first barrier-free diving event, a scuba diving event for both able-bodied and disabled people, was held at Odo coast in Itoman on June 8. Eight participants enjoyed an undersea environment.

After listening to underwater diving instructions from the event staff, the participants observed coral and fish swimming for 30 minutes.

One of the participants Sakiko Yokokawa said, “I felt nervous because it was the first time that I tried scuba diving. I experienced swimming gently under the sea.”
Another participant Hikari Nonaka said, “I experienced attractive and unknown worlds for the first time. I want to try it again.”
