  • old shrine. i have never go into the cave made of large rocks.
  • Amazing traversable cave made of giant rocks inside the shrine.
  • You can go through the piled up impressive megalithic Cave Tour. Cannot Cave Tour the day before, as soon as the weather is so keep in touch to confirm in advance. Dirty clothes, walking shoes easy to recommend. Access is a 10-minute walk away from Kitada Hara to end at ikoma station, bus. I note fewer and returning buses.

  • If you visited this shrine, cave training, should receive a certificate of completion. So, please take the flashlight and slip walking shoes if possible. So you can experience a non-daily old Heian era since the sacred sites of Shugendo ikoma South and has been 😊 however, young children are dangerous, so unfortunately not admission. Also try dangerous indeed. Any adult person, could be admitted. In addition, part of the National Park, so the parking was easy to visit, good spot!
