  • Refreshing, great place to go in the summer because it's too hot in the summer and we're always looking for nice places. A great place to meet with the family.

  • Central region's largest and only the spectacular limestone caves. Outside even in midsummer in cool do. Is not attempting to capitalise on the drama out there big shops, exhibits and products stand out, and good products.

  • And the man who recommended digging, touristy caves; Written exhibition more than ordinary limestone caves, such as xx rocks there. I think that is what looks like a description along with the strong feeling disappears from a cave-like feel, go with the family fun.

Where to stay in Hamamatsu

Hamamatsu offers a wide selection of mid-range and low budget lodgings, lining both sides of the rail lines and spreading towards the north in Asahicho and Kajimachi. A few four-star options downtown and a number of ryokans offer onsens, while boutique hotels and hostels cluster in the north. An industrial city with a sizeable student population, Hamamatsu has plenty of inexpensive accommodations. Staying in the popular Sunayama Cho area south of the railway station puts you in close proximity to the river and seaside.
