Women Divers of Toba

The women Divers of Japan. Some in their 80s and still diving. They dive for shellfish, seaweed and sea urchins now rather that pearls.


They cooked the shellfish they caught for us on an open grill. There were no sauces. The shellfish were  just cooked in their own juices.I don’t like scallops but these were different and delicious. After our lunch they answered questions and danced. Fabulous tour.

These women usually come from a long line of divers. Grandmothers, mothers and daughters dive.
