    Fukuoka Pref. Kitakyushushikokuraminamiku Hiraodai 3-2-1
    This is a limestone cave created by rainwater of the Karst plateau, and is designated as a national Natural Monument. Inside the cave the temperature remains a steady 16°C throughout the year and can be enjoyed by any age group. The dozens of stalactites large and small hanging at the entrance is a must-see. The cave also has a shop and a restaurant, while their famous “karst manju,” a yeast bun filled with sweet potato paste, is especially popular.

    ここの鍾乳洞ほど自然を直に感じられる鍾乳洞は珍しいのではないだろうか?素足にビーチサンダルで鍾乳洞の中を入っていく、途中で膝元までの水流がある。岩にしがみつきながら、1つ1つ前進していく、途中途中で何万年も前から成長していく鍾乳石を見ることが出来る。ふと、水がなくなり、前を見ると、オペラ座のようなステージのそこに巨大な鍾乳石が現れる。自然が産んだ美術館とも言えよう。
