Was expecting that it would be a difficult climb but it was an easy tour inside the cave. It was also beautiful and the place was well maintained! Worth a visit.

Hot, hot hot, it was a steamy 73 degrees here in the caves...so long. I have been in many caves across the United States...but this one seamed like it would not end...then out of the blue an escalator I was amazed.

It was raining and we couldn't go to the beach so decided to visit Limestone cave. We were totally amazed and glad that we got to visit them.

Definitely worth a visit if you are staying downtown in ishigaki. Its only 30 minutes walk away. There are some exhibits of animals that live there, I was glad I didn't run into them. Lots of cool photo ops, and the lighting inside the caves it really well down.

The stairs are numerous, steep and slippery. The lighting is poor and somewhat cutesy, miniature colored bulbs in places. Clearance for taller people can be problematic. There have to be other safer and more interesting things to do on Ishigaki Island.

We weren't expecting much as it was the first stop of a group tour, and we've visited other limestone caves in Japan that have been disappointing. However, the beauty of the formations and variations within Ishigaki Cave and the ease of the walkthrough were a real treat. This is a live cave with with formations continuing to grow due to...

Don't be discouraged when people tell you that the walking is hard! There are many steps, but there are handrails, and it is well worth the trip inside. There are a few steps and then flat walking until you come to the next few steps. The cave itself is spectacular!

I wasn't expecting it, but there are 3 different caves and they are quite long. If you haven't seen limestone caves elsewhere, its highly recommended.

This was my first cave experience and I enjoyed it a lot. We went on a rainy day. It's fairly close to town and there's a bus stop fairly close to the cave. The restaurant has very reasonably priced food as well.
