Overall it was a pleasant experience, kids thought it was cool and they had fun in there.

However our elderly and kids were struggling in some sections of the cave due to the steep staircase and slippery floor (we went on a rainy day). For really small kids, expect to carry them up the stairs since the staircase’s steps are quite far apart, and there are no protective barriers besides the stairs.

Very small cave. You just get the entrance ticket and walk about 50m to the entrance. Although the entrance fee is low, honestly don’t think it is really worth the visit, especially if you have been to other caves in countries like New Zealand, Austria, etc.

Nice natural cave. You cannot beat the price to experience here; a must do for a quick afternoon. Not necessarily a day trip in itself, but easy to combine with other nearby experiences.

This was a cave I visited many years ago. I'll never forget, it was an experience of ducking, crawling, squeezing, and climbing, which made it a place you wouldn't want to visit again. Three of us were given a guided tour by a local resident. We left the cave exhausted and soaking wet! Recently, photos of the remodeled attraction (posted on social media), had me wanting to go back. IT is an enjoyable attraction these days. Now, stairways, handrails, and walkways make it easy to navigate. Being underground, there are spots where it can be wet and slippery at times so, sturdy walking shoes would be advisable. There are signs (English and Japanese) describing some of the interesting features and telling a brief history of the cavern.
It's a great place for photography. Bring along a camera and tripod if, available. The place wasn't busy and plenty of time could be spent composing photos. Less than an hour will get you through the cave and, the total step count would be under 1,000. At the ticket office, pamphlets in English and Japanese are available. Restrooms are located near the parking area and hand sanitizer bottles are available for use at the cave's entrance and exit. Caves, in Okinawa, are always refreshingly cool during the summer months yet, warm in the winter.

We came to Okinawa during a Covid peak and this is one of the only places that was open. Being it was August, the heat outside was suffocating. I had heard horror stories about caves in Okinawa having bad vibes as many caves were used as hideouts during WW2 and had tragic things happen in them which has lead to ghost stories. Even if that was the case, this cave doesn't give off that kind of vibe at all. As a matter of fact, everything about this cave is mentioned as happy, good luck, peace and sweetness. And that it was! First thing we noticed was the refreshing coolness inside the cave. Like it's own airconditioning! The floodlights beautifully illuminate the walls, cealings and walkways. There was quite a lot of water including a small stream and water dripping down the sides of the walls and ceiling. One sign mentioned the cave was known for good luck and women often birthed their children in the cave. On the way out, there is a window like opening shaped like a heart leading to a beautiful meadowy place with brightly colored butterflies dancing around! My 12 year old son said this was the highlight of our trip to Okinawa. We saved the best for the last!

I like exploring caves and Cave Okinawa was well worth a visit. The entrance to the cave was only 500 Yen, you pay at the booth where the parking area is then walk to the cave entrance. The cave is self guided but there are signs pointing to the right direction. The cave opening is pretty cool, it's not a long or gigantic cave. The cave might take anywhere from 15-30 minutes to walk through depending on interest. It took me about 20 minutes and I had the cave to myself. I saw a few bats but no other critters. There were a few fascinating geological structures and I did enjoy the lights inside. I can only imagine how much damage this cave takes during earthquakes. I do recommend visiting Cave Okinawa, it was a fun experience.

Stumbled upon this place while driving across Okinawa so thought I would stop and take a look. Really beautiful cave with a walkway from one end to the other. Its about a 15 min walk to the cave entrance from the carpark where you get your ticket and the whole walk takes probably about 45mins to 1 hour. I was actually the only visitor although I passed some people arriving as i walked back. Lovely rock formations, stalactites and stalagmites...

We stumbled across this cave on the way to the Okinawa Zoo and while we were hesitant at first looking at the ticket shack, we were pleasantly surprised. First we lucked out on the timing as we had the cave almost all to ourself. The cave is not huge but you can easily spend 30 mins walking up and down in about 200meters of cave. The lighting on boardwalks are very nice and it does give you an adventurist feeling. Definitely worth the reasonable ticket price and stop at the little cafe near the exit to soak in the laid back atmosphere of the village area.

My five and six year olds took turns being Dora and had a blast exploring the cave. It took us an hour to go through twice. It isn't as cold as I expected and maintains a temperature between 68-72 degrees Fahrenheit. The bathrooms are spotless. It was a great quick trip and was a comfortable walk even with the littles.

It was quite hard to find it because it didn’t come up in English Navigation, found with help of map. Little sign posting on the road. But when you get there - worth a visit. We have 2 young children (2y and 5y), we enjoyed the cave. Well maintained. Nothing else is around, you can buy some ice cream and drinks but that’s all.
