Bluefield’s bilingual instructor. Having lived in Hawaii for four years, Miho got fascinated too much by laid-back islands’ living style, which brought her to Okinawa’s ocean. Her favorite dives are dynamic ‘wide-angle’ dives of beautiful reefs surrounding Kuroshima, in the Kerama Islands. She knows exactly where big sharks are hiding, and where to find sea turtles. Also, her good eyes always find little interesting creatures like Orangutan Crabs, or tiny cleaner shrimps as well.

Takashi Mizuno founded Bluefield on 1997. He always has lots of ideas about making diving activities better and making a comfortable dive cruiser. Our boat, Swift, is transforming every year because of his renovation. He has been at an important position among dive leaders in Okinawa – he is always eager to train not only Bluefield’s staff but also other dive instructors to operate boat diving safely. He is also a professional underwater photographer, whose photos appear dive magazines in Japan often.
