A long walk in a cave with a subterranean stream flowing through it. Well lit & my kids enjoyed it! The place is well maintained & very safe. Not for wheelchairs & strollers.

My wife had been looking forward to this for a while. She'd seen it in the guidebooks and plenty of positive reviews about the place and the guides (she is Japanese). After taking it, neither of us can see what ANY of the fuss is about. I am American and (unlike other reviewers said) there was no English headset, but... More

2,200 per person to go in on a tour... but if you only wanna go into the entrance and take pictures of the awesome cave, I think is more than enough :)

Was interesting in terms of the dramatic entrance setting via the cave cafe but we couldn't follow all of the tour since the guided tour was in Japanese. Some people commented that they were given audio guides but we were only handed printed write-ups. Not sure why w didn't get the audio guides which would have made the visit much... More

Nothing interesting and not much to see except the old tree which was there over 150 years and worth taking a photo. We went there by joining a tour and considered it was overpriced for such scenery.

Had a great visit and really cheap. Kids are free and very interesting place. English head set very informative. I was sceptical at first but kids and I really found the tour interesting.

The valley and caves were absolutely beautiful! The tour was only in Japanese, and since it was raining, we had laminated pages with the translation into English. I think on sunny days, they usually give you an English audio tour. They had rain coats for sale of 100 yen and it honestly just made me super sweaty/sticky from the inside.... More

We made reservation by phone because the reservation online was full. Luckily they were able to squeeze us in. Our hotel were at Naha so it was about 1 hr bus ride (30 mins by taxi - approx 2800-3000 yen) to get there. It was hard to find the bus stop but I guess after they finish building the bus... More

I went with some friends and we all spoke English, but our guide made sure she engaged us throughout the whole tour to make sure we knew what was going on. I went through the reviews on here beforehand and nobody tells you that ya go through a journey on this tour. It's quite a beauty. But it's also a... More
