  • Several paid parking nearby. From the parking lot to the entrance of the Akiyoshi-do cave lined up restaurants, souvenirs and would some hotels. In the summer during the Akiyoshi-do cave, near the 39-degree temperature, I went to pay and as soon as I became a cool space. While relatively continues climbing. Underfoot are slippery, so caution is required. It is entered from the entrance and exit are the same place entrance, go back down the same road. However more places where the ticket on the bus maybe fee would cover also a route back to the parking lot, so not confident in the strength. Can be enjoyed while climbing the walls of the caves and pay extra for advanced courses.
