Ryusendo Limestone Cave Reviews
30年ほど前に行ったことがありました。地底湖がとても美しく、また行きたいとずっと思っていたのですがなかなかチャンスが無く、ようやく実現できました。 以前より整備されていて、見やすくはなっていますが、ワイルド感はなくなっていました。でも、地底湖の美しさは変わりませんでした。 そして今回は道の反対側にある竜泉新洞科学館にも行きました。チケットについているし時間があるので、ついでに行ったというのが本音で... more »I went there about 30 years ago. The underground lake was very beautiful, and I had always wanted to go there, but there was not a chance easily, and it was able to be realized at last. It's better and easier to see, but it's no longer wild. But the beauty of the underground lake remained the same. And this time, we went to Ryusen Shin-dong Science Museum on the other side of the road. I'm on the ticket and I have time, so i went there by the way. However, even though it is right next to Ryusen-dong, the inside is completely different and it was very interesting. I don't know what time it will be next, but I want to go again.
日本三大鍾乳洞とのこと。秋芳洞を想像して行ってみたら通路はは狭く階段を上ったり下ったり。勝手な想像とちょっと違っていたのが残念でした。 more »It is said that it is the three largest cave salnook in Japan. Imagine Akiyoshi-dong and the aisle smaller and going up and down the stairs. It was regrettable that it was a little different from a selfish imagination.
