Walk down a mystical route at Valley of Gangala, a valley formed after the collapse of a limestone cave. The forested valley has inspired a number of myths and folk tales, and legend has it that spirits dwell in this secluded area. Tall trees and bamboo grow out from the foot of the valley to join the forest above, with the dramatic rock formations of the valley walls blending with the foliage to create impressive scenery. A limestone cave offers another layer of mystery and magic (and a cafe) to your adventure.

Travelled on the bus from central Naha and visited the cave for the first trip in the morning at 10am. We booked the day before. We didn't realise there were English guided trips that also took place ... more »
鍾乳洞やガジュマルの木など、何十万年も前にもそこにあった風景を想像しながら感じることができる不思議な体験ツアーです。また 「港川人」についても、まだまだ未知の部分があり。とても興味深いです。 more »It is a mysterious experience tour that you can imagine and feel the scenery that existed hundreds of thousands of years ago, such as the cave and the tree of Gajumaru. There is still an unknown part about "Kokawa-to" yet. It is very interesting.
The caves are amazing to see without a doubt. If you get the chance to go here or to Okinawa World across the street, you’ll be amazed by the enormity of the caves. However, the cafe here only offered drinks and ice cream. We felt it would’ve been nicer to sit inside the cave and munch on something instead of only drinking our beverages and then leaving. We drove a ways just to be able to do so and only drinking a quick beverage felt lack luster.
First off the offering for an English tour guide was worth every bit of the additional admission. The mosquito lotion provided staved off any mosquitos. The tea provided for the trek was nice, cool and refreshing. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. We lucked out and it was just me and my friend. I won’t give any secrets away. You will enjoy this adventure.
