Ryugashido | Japan Highlights Travel, for sightseeing around Tokaido

Hamamatsu Station 

[Ryugashido]

Welcome to an amazing and fantastical underground world at the foot of a 30-meter waterfall

Ryugashido is the largest sightseeing stalactite cave in the Tokai region. The full length of the cave exceeds 1 km, and about 400 m of this are open to the public. Stalactites with distinctive shapes and colors, through which they have acquired names like "jellyfish swimming up a waterfall", "hall of the phoenix" and "pillar of treasure", invite visitors into a fantastical underground world. The "Golden Giant Waterfall" is the most breathtaking sight of all: water crashes down from some 30 meters above as if it were falling from heaven itself. All these features have taken unimaginable ages to form, and none who sees them can fail to be touched by the mystery and wonder of nature.
