... they are always smiling and wanting to be your friend :-). Since a third of our guests are Japanese, most of our staff can understand/speak some Japanese. Its so cool. They are constantly throwing Japanese words around and wanting to talk to us in Japanese. Our dive company is the biggest I have ever seen. Not necessarily in terms of size- but highly organized an it feels very much like a corporate setting. In our office, we have reservation ...
