explorers of other worlds













Whilst researching things to do in shizuoka, I found a really campy website advertising 'seawalking'. It looked awesome, so we tried it.

It really felt right out of Jules Vern story- we descended with 50 pound helmets with air tubes that fed up to the boat below and wandered around the ocean floor. Our guide gave us some fish food and a few came and ate out of our hands. It was kind of dark and foggy down there due to the weather, but it added to a mysterious vibe that felt storybookish, so we enjoyed it.


  1. Wow! This looks so cool! Kind of creepy too, but I'd totally try that. It's awesome that you have pictures of it too!


  2. oh wow, these photos are fantastic! i love the helmets you had to wear, they look so cool! though i'm sure they weren't very comfortable, haha.

  4. i always find myself thinking you are a movie character because your life is amazing! SO COOL! i can just imagine you finding a kitchy japanese website advertising this - i can imagine the type of website you mean in my head - and i love that you guys did this. the photos are awesome - such a cool experience. you've definitely got a story to tell
