Enoshima Iwaya Caves, Fujisawa

3.1
#5 of 11 in Parks in Fujisawa
Elevated high above the sea that eroded them thanks to multiple earthquakes, Enoshima Iwaya Caves first appeared in recorded history in the sixth century. In the 1970s, the caves were precarious and closed off due to general instability, but in 1993 the city cemented them and furnished them with handrails, giving visitors an opportunity for comfortable excursions underground. Inside you'll witness plastic models and statues, atmospheric lights, and strange cave formations. One of the tunnels is even said to lead all the way to the ice caves near Mt. Fuji. Make Enoshima Iwaya Caves a part of your Fujisawa vacation plans using our Fujisawa tourist route planner.

    No straight path breaking look at Iwaya cave tours spun as man holding a candle into it to get the last that I feel is how you feel walking into a fairytale. Just go try it!
