This mysterious monument is a caisson, a concrete formwork used for breakwaters, which was sunk because it did not fit the size of the caisson.
The west side of the caisson is home to saddleback anemone fish, and to the south, there is a separate reef on the sand bottom where you can see many schools of small fish.

The Reason of why we can not go to Ie Island directly from Okinawa mainland is It is important to give back to the local community by using local services on Iejima. This is an absolute rule. On the other hand, it is not allowed to go diving directly from Ie Island to the main island of Okinawa by diving boat.
*There are no changing rooms , so please wear your swimming wear beforehand.
