History


Description

滝観洞 (Rokando - Waterfall Cave) is a river cave with numerous small waterfalls and rapids. The tour follows the main passage for 880m until it reaches a 60m high shaft with a diameter of 16m. The water emerges from a crack high above and forms the highest waterfall in any show cave in Japan with a drop of 29m named Ama no Iwato no Taki (waterfall of the heavenly cave).
