An unexplored region of a lot of existing Kansai. While the huge cave more than 1,500 square meters of total areas is confirmed in that; the first area. When the inside becomes 4 laminar structure and enters all over from the entrance approximately 1m in height, in the coat 3 domain of the basket, the first big layer whether there will be opens.

At first a rock big as for jumping into eyes. The best part and the scenery that it deserves to be you to express can enjoy the sense that totally became the chief character of the adventure movie. It is easy for 90 degrees to climb the thin ladder going to three levels from the second layer in a degree of leaning whether there will be, but there is a thrill so as to shake a foot when I go down.
