Ryuga Cave

Visit or adventure in this designated natural treasure limestone cave
Designated a national natural monument and historic site, Ryuga Cave was formed over 175 million years ago. The cave is approx. 4km in length and about 1km of this is open to the public. Among the mysterious natural sights the cave presents, there is also projection mapping fusing the ancient with the near future. The cave has even been set up with Wi-Fi!
Put on a headlight and try the adventure course which takes you through parts of the cave so narrow you need to almost crawl to get through! Note that you do need to book in advance to go on the adventure course.

Adjacent to Ryuga cave is the Rare Birds Center where you can see onagadori (lit. long-tailed chicken), a bird designated as a special natural treasure.
