  • Nothing to see in this cave. No bats seen in this bat cave. Waste of time and money. Doing something else instead is a better idea trust me !  more »
  • This time try caving, first of all I entered the warming-up. This hole is to remember 300 meters depth (length). Seems that in the biggest hole. Also incredibly warm. Drawn by the warmth the bats came to live. The Rube Goldberg complexity, but may be proved is the information panel, so even a child. It's Fuji lava flow down the lava gas loses its funds, large caves. Hole is said like this hole is big and small 300 pieces around the Fuji I know famous Institute, including 10 points in degrees.

  • From Kawaguchiko to Highway 139 towards the Lake and Lake bat hole guide Board into eyes. I am going so close. Parking lot (40, free) also is the trail to the cave was unexpectedly drifting atmosphere of the forest. Bought the ticket at a ticket vending machine located beside the car park. Adults 300 yen, elementary and junior high school students: 150 yen is. Rent a helmet at head office, went to the Boardwalk. Enter the gate and there is another part of the forest. 5-road to the cave entrance for a moment could have laid wood, pleasant gentleman. Grows dense trees on both sides, moss-covered lava, plenty of sentiment in the sea of 味waemashita. Was there a cavity beneath the cold hardened lava rock, such as "holes for shelter from the rain". Imaging soft morning light, moist and rock covered with MOSS, and is very beautiful. If the bat hole entrance is fence bats were much larger animals are not put. And enters the cave ceiling is low, and the helmet was very good. Cave is about 350 meters round out and seemed to be to root around and come back. Gate to protect bats in the deepest part was provided. Is that of the cave temperature is low, the bat hibernating locations and have been so recently are decreasing the number of bats. I'm sure excited can enjoy adventure feel a little, but maybe that's why most bats to see doesn't seem so families with children in it. You can feel it came out around the forest of fairies in the bat cave marks as a natural monument. Yoku張rezu root because the trees growing on the cold hardened lava and 荒su take the weak trees and it was. I wanted to enjoy the fun while defending the forest mysterious nature was not Moss, such as roughness stomping to the wearer, route. Bat caves Management Office is also the starting point for nature guides and forest walking tour (charges apply) seems. You could enjoy a serene promenade walks and caving in March we visited mid-too much snow, almost no.

  • Tales about 20 or 30 minutes to do but only because you basically have to crawl through. Very damp which is obviously expected just make sure you have on the right shoes and prepare to land in some cave water.
  • Slippery and dangerous path await you in the cave ! Put on your helmet and start the adventure ! Frankly I was hoping to see bats everywhere, but sadly I couldn't see even one bat on my way in to the end of the cave. It was fun crawling inside the cave with the helmet though, but don't expect to see bats in there. Do not forget to get the coupon at the station or at the hotels nearby.
  • If it's not raining, it'll be a great place to visit. Like a mini adventure with my kids.
  • I have been here two times , Its beautiful..
  • Must wear the helmet for one part inside the cave and Don't forget to visit the exhibition area inside the gift shop.
