  • 山口市への出張時、空き時間ができたのでこれ幸いと訪問。知識では知っていたが、初訪問でした。 最初は展望台へ行ったものの、寒い中10分以上歩く気にはなれず、クルマで中間地点のエレベーターがある場所へ移動。地下80mだった筈だが、平日ということもあり一人でエレベーターに乗って下がっていくのはスリリングな経験だった。 到着してからの景色は更に貴重な体験で、ここまで大きな鍾乳洞は無論、出来上がるまでの...  more

  • The cave is beautiful and very visitor-friendly with audio explanations in English, Japanese and chinese. It's nice to spend some time there although it's not a very "Japanese" authentic experience...

  • it was a miraculous one hour walk beyond the outside world.. Calm and peaceful surrounding with a cool breeze which let you forget about where you are in the world. The dull lighting has added another value to the cave. Make sure to wear proper walking shoes as you have to climb wet, unfinished, muddy steps. Taxi service is available at around 1000¥ to return to car park or bus station. or you can have a 30 minutes walk back to where you started.
  • Beautiful cave system that’s well-lit and cool in the heat of the summer. There’s a beautiful waterfall at the entrance that makes for an incredibly neat starting point. You can walk all the way through the cave and out to an exit on the other end which brings you up to some grass plains. Smaller than some of the massive cave systems in the US but more enjoyable to walk around.
