かわいいトロッコに乗って上に上がりました。すぐです。眺めがいいです。小さな鍾乳洞でしたが、こんなに細いものを見たことがなかったので、繊細な感じで良かったです。紅葉も綺麗でした。
Reviewed:2019/09/16 平成24年開通のモノレール(スロープカー)あり。
鍾乳洞の入り口は急斜面を登った地点にあり、モノレール(スロープカー)があった。茶畑やミカン畑で見かける荷運び用のもの?に姿は似ているが、車体には丸太状に見える装飾もあって遊覧用を意識したデザインとなっている。利用料金は大人往復500円、片道300円で、登った後で自己申告後払いのシステム。16人乗り(4人乗り×4両編成)、電動式。延長=174m、高低差66m、走行速度40m/min、最大斜度...

          With a reputation almost as stellar as that of Kyoto, Nara is a must-visit for those searching for the remains of "traditional Japan." The largely green Nara city holds the majority of the prefecture’s treasures, such as the iconic Todai-ji Temple, in which a 15-meter tall Great Buddha sits, and Nara Park, where deer flock to befriend passersby. While mountains are by no means hard to come by in this area, for hiking with a reward, head to the Kii Mountains’ Yoshino district in spring, when the hillsides put on an impressive display of white and pink cherry blossoms.
