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.

Cold such as the natural refrigerator

Simply called the “path of the wind”, from near the entrance to that cold wind keeps blowing. There was much visited in the summer, but come out from the cave and brought the camera lens being clouded temperature difference between the inside and outside. Just in the caves all year round at about 12 ° C are kept cool in summer and winter was so warm.

A clean river is also flowing around the cave, and a child is also good for playing. But a monkey appears, so please be careful. An outdoor and the one which will be enjoyed are good on one’s way to a cave expedition.
