  Plaque on the Fujikawa Maru...

Favorite thing: Here is a plaque which is bolted to the deck of the Fujikawa Maru, which honours the man most responsible for developing the diving industry in Chuuk in the 1970's: Kimiuo Aisek.

Before that time, the shipwrecks here were mostly forgotten part of WW2 history. Largely through his efforts, Chuuk was established as arguably the premier wreck dive location in the world...
