Mysterious cave

It is said to be the oldest limestone cave in Japan, with a total length of about 500m and being created by nature from about 350 million years ago. Flowstones, icicles, stalagmites and other stalactites can be seen from the ceiling to the walls, and there is also a mysterious emerald green underground lake along the way. In the exhibition hall adjacent to the cave, you can find valuable seafloor fossils and explanations of ancient Japan.
