A stalactite cavern is a cave created when limestone is dissolved by rainwater seeping through cracks in the stone or by groundwater.
Please take a look at this dreamlike landscape created by nature.
There are over a million stalactites, said to be the most of any cave in Japan, while its total length of 5,000 meters also makes it one of the longest in the country.
It is famous as one of Japan’s top three stalactite caverns.
There are seven underground lakes within the cavern, and you will be drawn in by the beauty of the dragon blue water!
This stalactite cavern within Tokyo’s boundaries once prospered as a symbol of religious veneration, but is now a tourist attraction.
Let’s visit the shrine near the entrance before embarking on a journey to a mystical world.
The cavern was discovered by chance in 1969 in the course of limestone mining.
The structures within the cavern, which are its greatest attractions, are illuminated by blue light, exuding a mysterious atmosphere.
You can see the interior of this, one of Japan’s three greatest stalactite caverns, during a sightseeing course of about a kilometer.
There are many things to see in this limestone cavern, beginning with the “100 dishes” and the “Golden pillars”.
