We stayed in Ishigaki-Jima Is.. The hotel was near the port.We had dinner at "Hunakura no Sato".We had a 40 minute massage before we went to bed. It cost 4000yen each. I thought it's expensive, almost the same as in Tokyo.

We went to Hunaura on Iriomote-Jima Is. by Anei-Kankou ferry,which departed at 10. it took about 40 minutes. it was very calm.since i called toibu, who is master of the Inn, moldivian, before leaving Ishigaki-Jima Is.,he came to the port to pick us up. It took several minutes by car to the Inn. After arriving there, we opened our baggage and unpacked. It was around 12. We had him take us to a soba-shop nearby.After returning to the Inn, we took it easy, it was around 4, Harumi who is a staff member of Waterman and Mr. tokufs wife was there. Waterman is the name of the diving service shop. She is very pretty.She came to Iriomote from New Caledonia this spring. Before she moved to New Caledonia, she used to work for a horseback riding club for 10 years and had her own horse. Recently she has been into marine sports , such as wake boarding, kite boarding, and so on. Then, we met toku for the first time in 1 year, he was as much a muscle man as ever. It seemed that he got bigger. When we had met in New Caledonia last year, he had had a plan to open a shop in Iriomote. He brought it to fruition and works very hard.He told me that michel , who we also met in New Caledonia , had gotten married and had a child. I was very surprised to hear that. I knew time flies, but I realized that 1 year would be enough to do something if we had the will.
We made 1 dive as a test of gear this day.

Wake board
It was owr first experience. While it's very difficult to stand on the board for me, my wife could do it easily. Toku said that generally, women could do it. Anyway it was very interesting and we were more exhausted than we had thought before, espescially our arms. We should put our arms near our body and use our back muscles. We thought we would have liked to glide like Harumi.

We made the girl who wanted to do a 3rd dive change her mind. We went wake boarding. After finishing the boarding, she got into it. I think everybody must do that.

Wake board
I could glide very good at first today. But gradually I couldn't do it. Maybe I got tired. We saw Toku's dynamic boarding today. He seemed to be very excited.
