Visited here in the humid heat in the middle of summer. What a relief! The caves were nice and cool and absolutely beautiful. You can take your time wandering through. The price is a little steep at 1,100 yen but it ended up being really nice. We visited a cafe nearby and spent a few hours there.

The caves were amazingly beautiful. I loved the work out. Lots of stairs, inclines, and windy areas, made it very interesting. I bought some items in the gift store and left my phone there. Our bus took off and I thought I had lost the phone forever. Our wonderful guide, Mii, called the store. They were able to find it and said they would deliver the phone to my ship. I received the phone and the Kochi people at the ship were incredibly nice. The lady driver refused money from me. Wow!! Thanks to this lady, the Kochi helpers at the ship, and our wonderful guide, Mii!!!

This was a fun adventure and for fellow ‘cave enthusiasts', a must do adventure. We were very impressed with the care and effort that went into installing safe walkways and lighting throughout the caves. The cave is actually about 4 km long but the portion allowing direct public access is only approx. 1 km. To enter the cave you have to ascend a rather steep hill. To do this you can climb the wide stone stairway to the top or take the installed escalator! The cave took 175 million years to fully form but you can get a good overview in less than 30 minutes. It is fairly easy to navigate but you will find some spots a little narrow and some areas where you will need to bend low to avoid hitting your head. Be sure to check out the mini zoo at the end to see the Japanese roosters and peacocks.

If you don’t do steps well this is probably a cave you will want to skip. Set in the mountainside, the entrance to the cave gives no indication of the beauty that awaits you. From the moment you step inside you are doing steps into the heart of the cave, I would suggest wearing good footwear as the paths are wet and slippery. Unlike American caves there has been no blasting done to make the cave more accessible, you have to get down low to get through some of the areas and watch your head as you move wrong and you will knock your noggin. The cave was beautiful with many stalactites and stalagmites and well worth the visit.

Ryugado caves was interesting. Some different things to see. Like most caves lot of narrow passages and low entrances. Can get a little slippery. Worth the trip.
