School is about to enter summer vacation. Have you decided on your plans for this summer?
Anyway, Japan is currently experiencing an unusually hot weather. A guerrilla downpour also occurs...
How about leaving Japan and coming to Saipan, where you can enjoy summer at a resort in the right temperature?
Stay, play, eat, heal! Saipan World Resort is a resort hotel with a huge water park built on the beach.
There are plenty of beach activities such as snorkeling and SUP in the clear water!
Local restaurants and supermarkets are also nearby. The shaved ice that you can eat in the hotel lobby is also excellent!
At Crowne Plaza Resort Saipan, from 16:00 to 18:00 on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays until September 30th, you can experience making traditional Mariana crafts.
If you have come all the way to Saipan, why not experience the traditional crafts that have been loved in the southern islands of Mariana, such as lauhala bracelets, accessories made from palm leaves, and tilly flays? Even children can experience it, and it will surely be a good memory. Participation is free of charge, and the venue is the hotel lobby, so why not create a memento before you go out to dinner and wear it to dinner?
Please experience it!
Why don't you enjoy ZUMBA, which is popular in Japan, as a fun water exercise in Saipan?
At Aqua Resort Club Saipan, which has a mature atmosphere and is full of resort feeling, you can enjoy Aqua ZUMBA while watching the beautiful sunset three times a week in July.
For the time being, the set time is 50 minutes, but the instructor is enthusiastic and it can be 1 hour.
It feels like aqua aerobics, but you can enjoy exercising with a selection of songs. However, it consumes a lot of physical strength, so please enjoy it within a reasonable range. It's pretty bright, so sunglasses are a must!

Saipan, which was the site of fierce battles in the Pacific War, has many remains of underwater battles (wrecks and sunken ships).
These underwater battlefields are called wreck points in diving, and are gaining popularity around the world as points where you can see a spectacular view that is different from normal diving.
In order to preserve for future generations the ruins of this underwater battle, which is left on the seabed of Saipan and decays little by little over time, Saipan diving guides cooperated with underwater archaeologist Dr. Kotaro Yamafune to create a 3D model based on photographs. I am challenging "underwater photogrammetry" to create

Tourist map online release start!
The Marianas Tourism Board has started the online release of tourist information tourist maps "Saipan" and "Tinian & Rota". The content has also been updated to include the latest information.
Both can be downloaded in PDF format.
If you would like to see it, you can view and download it from the "Tourist Information" page below, so please take advantage of it!
Diving paradise "Mariana" has many diving points.
Did you know that among the many diving points, there is a point on the north side of Saipan that can only be dived in this summer season?
In winter, the wind from the north blows enough for windsurfing, but in summer it weakens and the sea becomes calm.
The point where you can get closer when the sea conditions start to settle down is only in the summer.
Diving in Saipan, such as "Spotlight" where light extends straight as the name suggests, "Banzai" where you can enjoy fish shadows and topography, and "Wing Arch & Wing Crevasse" where you can see completely different expressions even though the points are next to each other. A guide will guide you through the summer-only points on the north side of Saipan Island.

Would you like to observe coral spawning in Saipan this summer?
The spawning forecast date for 2023 has also been released!
In Saipan, local diving instructors have played a central role for several years, and persistent observation and consideration have been continued to identify the spawning season of corals. As a result, we have been able to guide customers on coral spawning tours since last year. Of course, it's a natural phenomenon, so we can't guarantee 100% compensation, but last year there was a high probability that we could enjoy it together with our customers, so we have high expectations for this year as well.
Massive coral spawning is expected this year on July 9th and August 7th.
Why don't you have a mysterious diving experience at night in Saipan this year? Details below!
