These are a set of limestone caves going down to some small beaches. They're in the narrow strip linking the North and South parts of Ishigaki Island. There's no English information available, but that's not a problem. The caves are nice enough, lots of stalacnites and stalactites, but nothing very dramatic. They provide a cool break from the summer weather... More

The size of the cavern was impressive, though it was not at all a difficult walk-through. The formations are many and interesting.

The Limestone Cavern is a nice place to visit on a rainy day. The caverns were more extensive than expected and had safe walkways with railings; it takes about 30 minutes for a self-guided tour. You are able to see many different and interesting stalactite and stalagmite formations. I disliked the piped in music and some of the lighting like... More
