Don’t bother going for the bats, you won’t see any. But this is a lovely lava tube, with cool features for you to discover withoit a guide.

Nothing to see in this cave. No bats seen in this bat cave. Waste of time and money. Doing something else instead is a better idea trust me !

The cave is accessed via the green line (about a 25 minute drive). Entrance is 350JPY per adult though the 2-day bus ticket gives a 50JPY discount (this is true for all the caves). Before you get to the cave entrance you take a short...More

There are no bats in this cave but it's quite interesting. You'll need to wear a helmet to enter, and the ceiling is so low in some parts that you almost have to crawl!
