Went early enough in the morning to beat the crowds to experience the caves. Nice and cool, wonderfully built displays and enough English information available about the history. Funniest thing was learning that cockfights have been deciding important matters for ages, lol. There were multiple spots in the cave to stop and admire, including a butsudan with multiple lanterns on the ceiling, as well as a display of naval tools. But the appeal for me was pausing to watch the waves come in and out of the cave itself and quietly contemplate, ignoring the people around me. Very wet as ocean caves tend to be, just watch your step and mind the overhead drips. There is no feeling of being rushed to get in and out asap so one can take one's time to admire everything. It is very narrow, however, so clausterphobic people are advised to get there either very early or very late.

The cliffs near the Yoshino-Kuman National Park have a hidden cave complex with an amazing bronzer statue to Murodaibenzaiten, the God of Water. A hiding post for samurai during the Heian period. Definitely worth visiting.

The visit to this rock cliff cannot be without the trip down to the cave. Which is why this attraction charges so expensively for the short journey down via a lift to the cave carved out by the ocean and tectonic forces. 1300 yen per adult. Can't remember the price for the kids but my younger one who is 5 went down free.

At the cave level there is a path marked out for visitors. Follow the path and you will get to some lookouts to see the power of the waves. There is a shrine dedicated to the Japanese gods below.

If you drive to this attraction, remember not to park at the convenience store where parking is charged at a fee. Instead just drive to the lookout and you will see a lane where taxis enter and there is a place where cars are parked there free.

This attraction covers two parts. First, you can just visit the cliff and enjoy the view, and to take some photos for free. Second, you can choose to pay to go 30-40M down and visit the cave. Inside the cave, there is a shrine, a small display of how the privates used to live there, and most importantly, the sea waves.

We visited the Sandambeki Rock Cliff just adjacent to the 千疊敷 attraction in Shirahama. A ticket needs to be purchased, and it is quite expensive- cost 1300 yen per adult (650 yen for children) due to the fact that the manufacturing for the 2 lifts is really expensive and costly annually.

Down in the cave, a picture would be taken from members of staff. You can purchase your picture after you have finished visiting the rock cliff from the little shop just in front of the lift area. You can also see large waves splashing into the cave and look at the beauty and strength of sea waves.

Overall it was a good experience, we can see not only the history of the cave, but also the strength and 威力 of the sea waves splashing into the deep caves made by the prolonged period of pushing throughout the years of history. Good!

I have to say this from the beginning itself... i love this place!!! It is a museum wherein you can actually hear, smell and feel the roaring waves. The place is just amazing, it took my breath away. Note: wear shoes that are anti-slip. Some walkways are wet so be careful while walking. Do not let the kids run around unattended and please hold on to the elders.

There is 1 intriguing phone booth that is located nearby. This phone booth is believed to be used by people who, because of depression, take their own lives by jumping into the cliff. It is said that this phone is used when they say goodbye to their loved ones. True or not, let us all pray that everyone overcomes their problems in a positive way.

The nature cliff is amazing made with nature ocean wave, by taking the elevator down to more than 12 stories, around 120 metres, to the button of cliff, you can suddenly feel the power of wave, and when sea water hit the rock, it can make great sound and splash which is amazing.

Sandanbeki consists of three steep cliffs with a large network of caves at the water level. An elevator is talken down to the caves, which has a shrine inside and a network of tunnels.

Sandanbeki is home to a very impressive cave and some stunning cliffs. The walk to the attraction is bestowed with a beautiful garden.

Take the elevator down to the caves and see awe inspiring excavations and how people actually lived there.

The cliffs on top are very impressive even from the viewing areas.
