Interesting enough

It isn't a must see spot, specially if you have already been to a limestone cave before, but if you got time on your hands, why not... It's not very long and quite well... read more

I've been to some very nice caverns in TN. this place was too amateur for me. too much lighting, too commercialized, go if you've never been to a cave if you must find something to do here, thought the ticket was overpriced too for such a short ride.

Having been in caverns before, his was just more of the same. Nothing outstanding. But for someone who has never been in a cavern, it would be worth the price of admission.

The entrance fee was 1,080 yen per person. Beyond the entrance, there was a tunnel for tourist, around 0.8 km long. And right after the exit was a souvenir shop as well as a restaurant. My friends and I had fun taking lots of picture, especially with a Totoro shaped rock. However, the size of the limestone or the cave... More

If it's a rainy day in Ishigaki (as it was when I was there), then consider visiting this place. It's not the best cave you'll ever see but it's a decent way to spend an hour or so.

The cave is amazing and very well looked after. the lighting in inside is cool but the music playing in the background is quite annoying. A bit over charged overall I would reccomend

I walked there from the town in 35 min and enjoyed the cave. It's fairly large and long way to walk safely on your own. Great opening times.

Was expecting that it would be a difficult climb but it was an easy tour inside the cave. It was also beautiful and the place was well maintained! Worth a visit.
