"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)."""

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.
