It was a very wet afternoon so it was good to be sheltered in the caves. There’s a covered escalator to the entrance and a covered walkway back down so even in inclement weather you don’t get wet. The caves are very narrow and low...More

Very close view to the amazing pieces of rocks. My head got banged many times as the pathway was very narrow and short in height. There's also an exhibition of cocks found in Japan near the exit (though a bit uncomfortable to see them living...More

I love caves. However, this cave has clearly had a lot of work done on it. There are several large chambers near or around interesting rock formations, and if you look closely, the rock wall is actually a coating over concrete. I found a patch...More

I love caves but this one left me a bit underwhelmed. Perhaps it was the 'unnaturalishness' especially of the first half. Or maybe the lack of stalagmites and stalagtites. The second half had more and was more enjoyable.... That said, it is a very long...More
