Akiyoshido Cave

Akiyoshido Cave

The largest cave in Japan and the second largest in all of Asia, Akiyoshido is a masterpiece of natural art. Tourists can use a raised walkway to stroll through 700 meters of subterranean landscape, all of it lit for maximum effect.

From golden-tan rock terraces to crimson and pink stalactites to unearthly limestone pools to the spectacular “golden pillar”, the colors of this underground wonderland remain largely as nature first created them, undimmed or diminished by the effects of wind, rain or other erosive factors.

True cave enthusiasts will also find other limestone caves in the area. Kagekiyodo and Taishodo are also in the same area, as well as several other interesting locations such as the Akiyoshidai Science Museum.
