Valley of Gangalaガンガラーの谷

Cave

Valley of Gangala is a subtropical forest that originated when a limestone cave collapsed hundreds of thousands of years ago. The valley occupies an area of about 47,995 square meters, and the distance to walk through the valley is about one kilometers. You can experience an ancient natural environment in the valley where there are large trees called “Giant (Ufushu) Gajumaru trees” known as the wise men of the forest as well as the Inagu Cave and the Ikiga Cave. A full-time guide accompanies tours through the valley in order to protect the abundant nature which is highly valuable to both archaeology and folklore science. The time required to take the tour is about one hour 20 minutes.

Review of Valley of Gangala Cave Cafe

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2018/09/09 Drinks & ice cream
Nice coffee shop just before the entrance to the valley. Mostly serving drinks like coffee, tea and various juices, also offers decent ice cream. Nice seating area in a pleasant shade from the cave.
Reviewed:2015/06/01 Waiting for the Tour - enjoy the Cave Cafe
Have a coffee, or ice cream or buy some souvenirs. It is quite interesting having a cafe in a cave with umbrellas to stop the cave dripping water on you.
Reviewed:2015/05/31 Location only! (not for the food)
The only thing you should be expecting at this "cafe" is an unbelievable location. Not enough snacks to call it a cafe. They serve fried rice balls, small curry with nan, and a soup. Nothing to...

          Let go of your image of a busy, ordered Japan and replace it with crystal-clear waters, white sand beaches, and relaxing folk music: You’ve arrived in Okinawa. A world away from the high intensity of Tokyo, Okinawans appear to live a laid-back beach life on this paradisiacal tropical island that lies in the middle of the East China Sea almost 1,000 kilometers south of mainland Japan’s most southern tip. Home to a spattering of islands, prepare yourself to discover underwater caves, star-shaped sand, and an island culture sometimes unrecognizable from mainland Japan.
