Genbudo Cave (Genbudo Park)玄武洞(玄武洞公園)


"A National Natural Monument-designated cave located in Genbudo Park along Prefectural Route 548 in Akaishi, Toyooka City. The cave is notable for the narrow, regular ridges from which it is formed, created when magma flowing from a volcano which erupted 1.6 million years ago cooled. Formed of innumerable lines of basalt, the cave's name is derived from the Japanese word for basalt-""genbugan."" The nearby Genbudo Museum provides information about the cave and also contains mineral and fossil exhibits."

Site for the hexagonal basalt columns in Japan. Friendly staff will explain the geology. In Japanese, basalt is called Gembudo, and was named after this site.

We drove to this attraction, found free parking at the visitor center/gift shop And went in the park for Free. These are not caves that one can go in, but observe the cave face from a safe distance...

          Hyogo prefecture stretches from the north coast to the south coast on the western end of the popular Kansai region, encompassing verdant mountains, urban beaches, and fantastic historical sights. The prefecture's main attractions lie along the south coast at Kobe, the prefectural capital, a pretty harbor city best known for its production of the renowned Kobe beef, and Himeji, the home of Himeji Castle, one of the country's most beautifully preserved feudal castles, perched magically atop a hill.
