Ama driver is an amazing group of women who live some fishing villages along the coast of Japan. These women worked and are still working as Ama. The word ‘Ama’ means ‘women of the sea or sea women’. They are independent divers. They make their living by driving. They can dive to the depth of the sea up to 25 meters. And they dive without using oxygen tanks or other breathing equipment. The Ama divers rely on their own skills and breathing technique. They use that skill and technique to push themselves down to the bottom of the sea and back to the surface again. They can hold their breath for up to two minutes. Careful watching, Jung capacity, and hunter instincts are the special quality of Ama divers. However, some of these young villagers are going to the city for other jobs. The remaining Ama divers are now aged between 50 and 60. But there are still some who continue to dive even at their 70s. if the young people do not take up Ama diving, soon the profession will die out.
