    Greetings all!

    I found myself hard to find a English speaking dive store and I had no idea where to find an opportunity to dive at Izu Peninsula. I will be at Shizuoka area on 4 & 5 June and love to do some fun dives over there but really have hard trouble finding a dive store. I'm traveling solo too.

    Anyone here can recommend me any???

    I'm open water and nitrox certified.

    Thank you so much!

    It may be difficult to find a shop with good English support on weekdays. You may want to drop Jim at http://www.discoverydiverstokyo.com a note and see if he can help you out.

    As busybugs wrote, it will likely be challenging to find someone on weekdays, especially as a solo traveller, but definitely worth trying. 3 suggestions:

    1. @Alfawolfje was able to guide us in Osezaki - DiveZone Tokyo - Scuba diving near Tokyo, Japan

    2. If he can't help you, you could try this shop 東京中野 PADIダイビングスクール|ライセンス取得|伊豆ツアー

    3. If neither of those works, if you have any other dive contacts in other areas of Japan ask them to help you. This is how we finally found a way to dive Koganezaki during the week.

    Good luck. Izu diving is worth the effort.

    Unfortunately, both DDT and DZT groups only dive in the weekends. I had an English contact at IOP but he also moved to Okinawa resulting in a lack of English support. Go to the DZT website and send me a message and might be able to refer you to somebody else.
