History


Description

Kagekiyodō was named after the legend of the samurai general Kagekiyo. 800 years ago he was defeated in a battle and retreated into the cave. This is a river cave with a small cave river running along the trail. The passages are almost devoid of speleothems, but show nice scallops and fossils

There is also an extension to the tour named adventure course, which means the participants are equipped with helmets, lamps, and rubber boots. At the end of the trail, where the tour normally turns around, the adventure tour participants enter the following part of the passage which has no electric light and no concrete paths.
