    Explore great limestone caves across the 9 kilometers in length, is only 1 km. From the caves of the elevation difference 40 m and takes about an hour. By underground water in the cave in like a mountain stream, the river flows through the. Annual average temperature of 17 degrees, so cool in summer! Stalactite 2 cm to 500 years to grow, you will feel the ancient Romans. While ties under the ceiling and Golden pillars, was a sight to see! Bats are flying normally. Bat droppings are black, when you get to the clothes, wash well not to fall, so careful please!. If you go to the Akiyoshi plateau and Akiyoshi-do cave should go. Inside the cave is dark and wet, so sneakers are recommended.!

    Region this side of most like to go in the car, so I think go trains and buses are difficult areas, from Yamaguchi station Shin-Yamaguchi station, Shimonoseki station direct bus. 1, 6 degrees so should check schedules to go well when you use. Rimstone preferred fall 10 minutes from bus stop of the Akiyoshi plateau tourism Center on foot. Closer to the entrance to Akiyoshi-do cave, felt the chill from the cave. Rimstone is one 1,200 yen for adults. But here I thought for foreign tourists special rates are, the passport or ID required adult 700 yen per person. I'd hit the person passing in front of bats in the cave because there is rarely. Rather adhere to the clothing of bat droppings and dirt, so I prefer. There you can explore the Cave 1 km, from the cave entrance go Akiyoshi plateau in the vicinity of 700 meters. Akiyoshi toured the elevator go Akiyoshi after sightseeing in Akiyoshi-do cave Akiyoshi-do Cave's possible re-entry to the Museum because of the back to fall again in the Akiyoshi-do cave, with a bus stop staff in akiyoshidai Tourism Exchange Center to go.
