Furen Stalactite Groto (風連鍾乳洞)

"A limestone cave located in Tomari, Notsu-machi, Usuki City. Discovered in 1926, the cave is 500 meters deep and has been designated a National Natural Monument. Largely unaffected by external influences like weathering caused by the outside air, the interior of the cave is a beautiful, lustrous almost pure white. Visitors to the cave can view 21 picturesque groupings of stalagmites including stalactites with names like the ""Tenjokai (celestial world),"" ""Remyokaku (miracle tower),"" and ""Zuiun-no-taki (waterfall of auspicious clouds)."""

Review of Furen Limestone Cavern

Reviewed:2020/03/27 穴場の鍾乳洞
鍾乳洞は全国にありますが、ここは特に美しいのに人が少なくておすすめです。入口の建物も昭和感があって面白いです。

奥行500mの鍾乳洞は「日本一美しい」と書かれています。
いろいろな名前が付けられた鍾乳石が見事です。
中でも、一番奥まった所にある「竜宮城」と名付けられた広場が特に見ごたえがあります。
現在の入り口の隣に、大正15年に青年団が入った入り口があるのですが、途中が地下水で通行不可となっており、入場できなくなっています。
ただ、入り口の上に、当時発見したであろう人々の名前を記した石があます。

誰が言ったか、大分三大鍾乳洞の1つ。

県外のそれと比べると規模は小さいが、

客の少ない鍾乳洞、というのも良いもんだな、と感じれる穴場観光地。

          A trip to Oita is tantamount to a long soak in the Beppu baths. The mountainous, coastal prefecture of Oita is renowned for having more onsen than any other prefecture in Japan, most of which lie in the city of Beppu on the west coast of Kyushu, recognizable by its pungent sulphuric aroma and the clouds of steam that puff up across the hillside. Away from the Beppu hot springs await mountains, waterfalls, and temples, so don’t hesitate to explore Oita a little further.
