Inazumi Underwater Limestone Cave稲積水中鍾乳洞
The Inazumi Underwater Limestone Cave was formed 300 million years ago in the Paleozoic era, and took its current form after being submerged in the Aso volcano eruption 300,000 years ago. It is one of the world’s more unusual underwater limestone caverns, replete with underwater stalactites, coral stones and helictites. It is possible to walk around and see inside of the caves. The sound of water trickling down with quiet echoes into the “reverb pond” and the sight of the beautiful green “emerald spring” are mysterious wonders not be missed.

Oita Main Areas
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.
