- Taisho Cave
Three-dimensional limestone cave with several layers located on the north-east edge of Akiyoshi plateau.
People used to be afraid of their cows taken away during the battle and hide them here. Since then, it was called "Ushi-kakushi (Cow hiding) cave".
This cave was found 15th January in 1921. The natural limestone bridge, rich stalagmites, and the structure of pit explains the rarity of this 1km long cave.
Complicated five-story structure of Naraku hell, Jigoku hell, Gokuraku heaven, and two Takamagahara shapes this three-dimensional cave.
Each of rocks and stalagmites has it's unique shape and decorates this great underground palace.
This cave introduced the first "Magu-sciever" in Japan for an enjoyable tour guide, sound, and music.
