Experience sub-zero temperatures any time of the year as you make your way down into Narusawa Ice Cave. Take caution and hold onto the thick bamboo railing as you make your way into the 21 m (68 ft) deep ice cave created by an outpouring of lava, caused by a volcanic eruption that occurred over a thousand years ago. As you traverse the cave, look for a small ice pond, and beware of sharp pillars of ice sticking down from the ceiling. A visit to Narusawa Ice Cave represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Narusawa-mura vacation trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • I came because I wanted to go from the front. This I thought that on this helmet, look a lot is bad. Here, absolutely necessary so please wear. Where Crouching in caves of the Gati and not pass lumpy hit the ceiling. I thought girls had got dirty clothes clean now and I kinda way, shoulder tote bag too. Look out your clothes bags shoes. For the elderly who pretty much anyone. Although 15 minutes or so come back on so I recommend as easily explore. You are really on the brink do cold and clean.

  • It is very cold. It was cold, so jacket is required. Sandals are dangerous! Mysterious and very beautiful.

  • Lower the height of the ceiling, her foot is well after the rain it was hard. You are quite narrow, so stop in 2 minutes can get back as far as. Icicle was beautiful, but too much per light for deep, shining, which do not know the voice was heard.

  • Temp drops down to 20deg at cave compared to the atmosphere.. This lava cave has small path way where you have literally crawl.. adventurous...
  • Worth a stop if you are in the area. Was about $3 US and you get to go on a quick self guided tour of an ice cave. Cave gets very cold as you go down. Lots of steps and some crawling so be prepared for that.
  • Staffs are very friendly and helpful. The one we met's English was very good too. The website said they close 17:00 but they actually close on 17:30 (10/06/17)
  • The surrounding forest is far better than the cave itself. It only takes about 5 minutes to walk all the way around it - you'd spend longer in the shop!
  • Went in late October 2016 and was underwhelmed. The surrounding forest was more interesting than the cave itself, IMO. Unfortunately, there were no ice formations at the time and, most of all, the scale of the cave itself was quite small and we finished it far too quickly. Besides that, there are a few historical exhibits but that's about it. As far as caves go, the features weren't that geologically impressive either...Might be better during the winter months?? The forest itself was formed on top of cooled magma so there are are lots of neat topographical features (i.e. extremely bumpy, lots of small crevices,) and it is just a pretty forest in general with all the moss. Yes there is all the folklore and it has a reputation but it is an impressive forest in itself.
