This is a really fun outing for families. Keep in mind that it requires walking on slippery surfaces, and you have to watch your head if you are tall. They gave us an English flyer, and we enjoyed matching the descriptions to the actual cave formations. The best ones were the bat and the turtle climbing up the wall. After the cave, we climbed down the stairs to the riverbank and sat on the rocks, skipping stones on the water and admiring the greenery and waterfall. It was a nice, relaxing way to spend family time. Although there was a sign advertising fishing gear for rent, the shop was closed, so we were unable to try it. This place is very walkable from Ikura station, and the people at the little store across the street from the station were very friendly.

We took a day trip from Okayama. This cave is an easy 15 mins walk from the station. You will be greeted by a waterfall and many eateries lining the walkway to the cave. Most of them selling grilled ayu sweet fish, delicious and fragrant. We enjoyed the cave a lot, very slippery though so wear good grip footwear. It was fun looking at the different rock formations and then dipping our feet at the super cold icy water at the end of the cave walk.

The cave is amazing and beautiful. It looks as though the only thing that has been done is install just enough lighting to get by and spot the best rock formations, as well as install a bit of flooring. Even that has been kept simple- at times, just a board in the streak to keep your feet dry. NOT for those with physical disabilities- you need to be able to duck, crouch, and even twist sideways to get through in places. NOTE: access by train is very limited. Once an hour or every two hours, if you are lucky. If you are visiting the other cave, the last bus there and back is fairly early, so be careful of the time.
