  • Time than I thought, but I went to fun. It is in the cave is cool, so come in the summer. Bats at the entrance that is really cute. Exhibits are not taking the money, but a local atmosphere is indescribably good.

  • Have seen many caves of domestic and overseas until now, Dragon moth sight where water runs down from the ceiling like a rock cave in cave waterfall or waterfalls, saw for the first time. It thought that this cave was dug little by little at the hands of the people, very valuable in that sense thanks to that we enter, so can enjoy, thanks. Rather than cave cavers who goes just the overall look and feel. The gelato shop, go out of the cave as an aside, that was sold in very helpful.

  • Place the new Tomei Hamamatsu not. Internet from about 15 minutes by car to the South. In 2017 is in the stage drama, iitani. Parking lot is 100 units to, is because the percentage is easy. Bought tickets (¥ 1,000) in the dining room of the hotel building on the second floor "Furusato" after receiving meals (specialty of Hamamatsu dumplings and eel), the cave tour. Is quite deep (500 m long), the friendly stalagmites look on the side of the track. 呑みます water falls from the sky of darkness scene is wonderful, breath is especially deep near the Golden falls. When I visited when a lot of people have is like a stepped, photography is prohibited, but not everyone lucky enough to a good 10 minutes. Is this cave were unearthed after World War II as a tourist, so was its history are spelled out in the vicinity of the exit. As an aside, outside was fruit shop (shop Tangerine). Impulse buying dekopon was very tasty, was compounding the joys of traveling.
