Miura Peninsula Arasaki
When I dived into the rocky area of about 4 m in Arasaki and took a picture, I saw a spiny lobster sticking out from under the rock. When I looked around, I found that the tentacles were popping out from under another rock, and they seemed to be fairly close. I was warned once and was hidden under a rock, so I couldn't continue shooting.
