蟷螂の岩屋 (Tohro-no iwaya - Crab Cave), also called 蟷螂の窟 (Tōrōnoiwaya, Mantis cave) is a small cave which is visited self-guided. It is also written トウロウの窟 (Tōrō no do, Touro's Cave). It was first named Ichinogoba. The ceiling is quite low, which is said to be a good education because you hit your head when you are too bold. It teaches you to live your life with a low head.
