  • It is a cave located north of County Road 208, about 3 km from the downtown area of Ishigaki Island. Location, easy to visit by car and free parking in front of the entrance. JAF preferential admission is 1080 yen (adult), 970 yen. Only cash, no cards or Edy. Compared to Akiyoshi-do cave in Yamaguchi space is small but pretty impressive. Rather than the privacy issues I can see the stalactites to almost reach the proximity was more. However, many locations, low height and narrowing complicated passage width. Is admonished for slippers and skirt to wear clothes, and legs are concerned, there are luggage, small children, etc. might be better. Coconut crab and the tree in front of the cave entrance (Butterfly Habitat in the South), and enters the cave again because of differences in the cave entrance and exit were sheep, but can see no longer. Especially the coconut crab was quite powerful, so don't miss out is necessary. To the cave exit kiosk and restaurant. It seems also dining room group for guests and customers in general are not available. Shop more on Ishigaki Island, Okinawa, Japan, were especially unable to relate to the cave. There have been half-hearted illumination is disappointing to note that the cave inside places lit by the light. Shining lights in wide range echanging it too very good feel. Also it was very disturbing to staff all passers-by to photograph, but near the large stone pillar-shaped stalactite carefully observed. I would also want more information concerning the history of the caves and geology to improve.
