Three whales jumped out of the water in a spectacular display near Fukaji Island, Zamami Village.
The scene was captured by Yasushi Sakurai, 56, from a ship on the morning of March 9.
It was his seventh year visiting Zamami, where he wanted to capture a whale breach. He had not had a chance to get the photo he wanted, and was frustrated.
“I extended to stay here one more night. I took a shot of the breach at the last minute. I feel so glad to have encountered this miraculous scene of the whale’s whole body leaping out of the water,” Sakurai said.
