  • It takes about 40 minutes by bus from Okutama Station. It is the only cave in Tokyo to be selected among the nine stalactites in Japan. Admission is 800 yen for adults.

  • You can reach the mountain path about 30 minutes by car from Okutama Station, and you can enjoy the scenery slowly. I went to summer, but the moment I entered, I was surrounded by the cool air. There is proof inside, but be careful because there is a place where the ceiling is low and slippery.

  • I was surprised to see that this area is surrounded by greenery in Tokyo. Because it is considerably cold in the cave, the cold prevention measures should be firm. In addition, because the foot is dark, and it walks considerably, please be careful at the foot. It is a feeling that there is a lot of access by car, but the road width is narrow as you approach, and parking congestion occurs depending on the time of day.

  • Wonderful, better than I thought, certainly not the best caves...but definitely worth the drive up the narrow road if you are in the area. Check for discount voucher and print it at combi store before going. and Mind your head....
  • Was pleasantly surprised. I initially thought it would be a small cave with one open area but it was actually oretty big and takes about 30 mins to walk through the entire place. Maybe more if you want to take photos or walk slowly to take a good look at everything and read the signs explaining the features etc. The only downside is the distance from the center of tokyo. Theres no way to get there other than to get a car. Parking space is very limited so suggest going there early during high seasons to avoid long waits just to park.
  • A very beautiful hike spot!
  • Excellent tourist spot for summer. The cave is cool at +11c constantly even during summer! The walk inside the cave takes approx 30-40 mins. Free car parking lots are available but it can get pretty crowded especially on weekend. The road toward this place is paved but is also very narrow in the last 20 mins journey. You need to avoid incoming cars and buses with road bays, and if there is a queue, you need to line up accordingly so that buses can pass on the other side of the bay.
  • The visitor there had no respect for others when I visited. Such pity cuz the cave itself was sublime.
