Akiyoshido, Mine

4.7
#1 of 84 in Parks in Yamaguchi Prefecture
Step into Akiyoshido, a large cavern housing a number of interesting rock formations and a mysterious, otherworldly atmosphere. A prominent feature of the local karst landscape, the limestone cave has an entrance 24 m (78 ft) in height and 8 m (26 ft) in width, though the cave reaches 100 m (328 ft) in width and 80 m (262 ft) in height inside. Punctuated with a number of naturally carved works of art, the cave has become known for its terraced limestone pools, underground waterfalls, and streams.

  • The entrance fee for Akiyoshi-dong is 1,200 yen, but we used the "Tour Common Ticket", which allows you to enter the cave for 2,000 yen in the caves of "Akiyoshi-dong", "Taishodo" and "Gyeongqing-dong". There are three entrances to Akiyoshi-dong, and I think that the entrance varies depending on how people enjoy it. I parked my car at the Kurotani entrance, went down the pavement road, and entered the cave from the front entrance. The reason for this route is that the parking lot at the Kurotani entrance is free, the slippery cave is easier to climb, and the cave is more likely to cave from the wide part of the downstream side to the upstream side. I go to various caves, but I think akiyoshi-dong is the best beauty of the cave.

  • Since my junior high school trip, I remember about the 100 plates near the entrance and the golden pillars in the middle. It was cool and pleasant when I went inside, but it was hot around the golden pillar because there was no passing through the air. And when I came in the past two times, I turned back at the halfway point, but this time I walked to the end. Since the second half was my first time, I was impressed to learn the great ness of the cave. It was good to go to the end. There seem to be a lot of people who turn back with a golden pillar, but it is also worth going to the end. My father was new to me, but at first he didn't feel like riding, but i was very impressed by the way he was happy to go.
