The shuttle bus provided from/to public bus stop. The cave is about 800m and needs 30-40 minutes to complete the tour. It's interesting to see the whole area was under the water long time ago.

The place offers a nice walk, first through a museum then through caves. The museum is completely random (within the same room you discuss politics, weapons, animals, arts, architecture, history...). The caves are well arranged with (unnecessary?) colorful lights. If you go there for a...More

This is recommendable tour, about 20 mins drive from Takayama. You enjoy exploring inside the natural cave, nicely paved the walking trail with detailed map and audio guide available. A bit difficult to access by public transport(there is a scheduled bus, but very few services...More
