Travel Guide - Bitchu-Kanachiana Cave


Bitchu-Kanachiana Cave located in the northern part of Kibi-kogen Plateau is the oldest limestone cave in Japan. A place of natural artistry, the cave’s stalactites give it an air of mystery.
3 meters tall stalagmite called "Mt. Fuji in the cave", limestone pillar called "five-story pagoda", and the Japan's largest stalactite can be seen in the cave. The temperature inside the cave is about 9 degrees Celsius all year round, so it is cool in summer and warm in winter.
