Paid 1300 yen per adult to visit the caves and watched half an hour of the traditional cultural show. 850m of the cave are open to public and feature spectacular stalactites and stalagmites. The...

The cave was lovely, marked well and for most part had few people so getting photos was not an issue.

          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.
