Inazumi Underwater Limestone Cave
Inazumi Underwater Limestone Cave was formed 300 million years ago, and it went under water by a large volcanic eruption 300,000 years ago. Inside the limestone cave appears the mystical world with myriads of stalactites and coral stones as well as a beautiful spring in emerald green. You can walk around inside this beautiful cave. Although it is still under survey, it is at least 1 km long judging from what we know so far. It is the longest underwater limestone cave in Japan.
