Scuba source

In reply to the inquiry about scuba diving (Lifelines, Oct. 6), Matt writes on behalf of Mar Scuba, the oldest foreigner-run dive operation in Tokyo ( ).

"Mar Scuba serves the foreign community by providing education and instruction in English, PADI scuba diving courses from beginner Open Water to Instructor level, local dive tours to Izu and overseas, as well as sales and rental of scuba diving equipment in Western sizes, which is what reader Tim was searching for." (A.J.)

In response to the reader returning home who was seeking recommendations for shipping belongings, M.R. offers what he knows will be redundant advice for her, but may help others in the future.
