Owner of the sea kayak school


Toshiyuki Nagaoke


Professional Instructor, Mr. Nagaoke


I was surprised at the enthusiasm of westerners toward leisure activities while I was abroad in a foreign company. When I'm on kayak with my guests, I will do everything possible for safety. I also got an ACA (American Canoe Association) certificate for instructor. I write a book about sea kayaking and also provide text books. I participated in the surf kayak world championships, surf kayak world cups and so on.


Our club house is facing the Sotoura Beach, a perfect place for rowing a kayak with quiet waves. You can visit with kayak, small islands off the coast and cove at Suzaki Peninsula. In summer, you can enjoy both sea kayaking and snorkeling in one course. From autumn to spring, Sport Kayak is exciting full of speed, overcoming the waves to get out of the beach. I can teach you in English, as I am an American Canoe Association official certified instructor,

My recommendations

Superb view spots of Shimoda recommended by local guides
Tsumekizaki Lighthouse. Sotoura is the base of the Suzaki Peninsula. When you go out to the sea and proceed along Suzaki Peninsula, crossing the offshore of Emperor's resort mansion, the lighthouse of Tsumekizaki will eventually come into view. It is the southeastern tip of Izu Peninsula. The flow of the tide is rapid and the deep color of the sea is impressive. Most difficult area for ships to go across. Tsumekizaki Cape with lighthouse projecting into the immense Pacific Ocean is always in my heart.
The most favorite place in Shimoda
Floating over the sea. Kuroshio Current is a huge river crossing the sea. Sea is often so turbulent, which sounds thrilling for kayakers. If you dive with snorkel, many beautiful sea creatures welcome you near the reef. Simply floating on the sea, I just fall into revrie over the world spreading beneath.
The most favorite spot in the ocean of Shimoda and what makes the spot so special
The view of small islands off the coast of Sotoura, with Izu 7 Islands floating afar. Fudejima, a brush island, standing upright is the center of the bay, harmonizes with the perfect arch, the white sand beach depicts. Rugged islands are near the open sea. We go like knitting between these islands. Izu 7 islands, Oshima, Toshima, Niijima and others seems closer on a sunny day.
