  • Also the amount of water flowing in a big cave in Japan or many, is the name of the variety name is spectacular. Was from the back is uphill from the table, but it is generally downhill, it may be good to the old. I think if you have time I spent in the Akiyoshi stand is also good.

  • Don't come up here, not the biggest limestone cave, the entrance. In the times of the year than the wonders of the great world, Earth could not imagine is the long lapse of time... will be overwhelmed. 1 mm to years... is beyond the scope of thinking time. Shortness of time compared with human... even in its short lifetime regret worries joy anger,... are you doing I guess, and. No matter how painful, even to just just one short time with ease. It is a place you can feel comfortable and think I only come here to bad biorhythms, or frustrated. Go to the hospital more than likely has the effect of,. So I think people who say that here is no less daring stands description of the cave itself.
