  • Huge. Widely so far was a premonition from the entrance, but did not expect a huge space. Cave and heard, was the image's space walk in a kneeling position, such as Fuji ice hole and air hole and slip through the wall between tightness. Totally wrong. Tens of meters on the ceiling and space spread over up to 100 meters or more. The art of stalactites, formed over the years. This is worth a look. In the elevator on the way in the Akiyoshi stand would be better climb, but don't expect too much here.

  • Summers are cool and winters are warm... it is like water. Lack in physical strength is vast, not too much place to take a break, so people do not recommend too much. However, it is worth it to go there.

Inside is very underground exploration itself. Countless stalactites large and beautiful in the moist air. The impressed. Is quite long more than 1 km walk is not it. It would be best coming from where there are loopholes following karst plateau in the Middle, with. That was great! And although I'm in shank... a lively foreign populations are... in photography was very picky. Humiliated
