My wife had been looking forward to this for a while. She'd seen it in the guidebooks and plenty of positive reviews about the place and the guides (she is Japanese). After taking it, neither of us can see what ANY of the fuss is...More

A long walk in a cave with a subterranean stream flowing through it. Well lit & my kids enjoyed it! The place is well maintained & very safe. Not for wheelchairs & strollers.

Had a great visit and really cheap. Kids are free and very interesting place. English head set very informative. I was sceptical at first but kids and I really found the tour interesting.

The valley and caves were absolutely beautiful! The tour was only in Japanese, and since it was raining, we had laminated pages with the translation into English. I think on sunny days, they usually give you an English audio tour. They had rain coats for...More

Guess as long as you pay the entrance fee, you could go in and explore but I am not absolutely sure. Included in our tour was a local drink, a guide who would just give you brief and basic explanation at a couple of spots... More
