    Just got back from a trip to Tokyo Japan to visit the in-laws. While there we all made a 4 day trek over to Okinawa so the wife and I could do some diving there. I had heard diving her was Amazing and it did not disappoint. 3 of the 5 dives were in deep canyons and caves, while the other 2 were over the massive reefs around the Naha island. Truly spectacular and exactly the kind of thing I got certified for.
    Animals we saw
    - Every type of damsel you can think of and 5x larger then any i had see in our tanks.
    - Covict tangs, Orange shoulder tangs were everywhere.
    - Several morays.
    - Rock fish.
    - Frog fish.
    - White tip reef shark
    - Squirrel fish.
    - cuttlefish
    - garden eels
    - green sea turtle
    - hawkfish
    - Spiny lobsters
    - and many more
    Corals were mostly SPS pavonas, staghorns and acros, with a mix of other leathers, soft corals, favia, and acans.
    Luckily our dive guide had a great underwater camera setup and took a ton of photos
