Dating back 50 million years, Ryugashido Cavern stands as the largest stalactite cave in Japan. Around 400 m (1,312 ft) of space open to the public and 50 observation points draw visitors here year-round. Admire the stalagmites and stalactites of all shapes and sizes, limestone rooms, and colorful stone walls visually enhanced by tasteful lighting. Highlights include a 30 m (98 ft) high waterfall tumbling from the ancient rocks. A museum awaits at the end, with further information in an English pamphlet. Buy a memento in the souvenir shop and don't miss tasting the ice cream. Plan to see Ryugashido Cavern and other attractions that appeal to you using our Hamamatsu vacation trip planner.
