The cave is amazing and very well looked after. the lighting in inside is cool but the music playing in the background is quite annoying. A bit over charged overall I would reccomend

I walked there from the town in 35 min and enjoyed the cave. It's fairly large and long way to walk safely on your own. Great opening times.

Was expecting that it would be a difficult climb but it was an easy tour inside the cave. It was also beautiful and the place was well maintained! Worth a visit.

Hot, hot hot, it was a steamy 73 degrees here in the caves...so long. I have been in many caves across the United States...but this one seamed like it would not end...then out of the blue an escalator I was amazed.

It was raining and we couldn't go to the beach so decided to visit Limestone cave. We were totally amazed and glad that we got to visit them.

Definitely worth a visit if you are staying downtown in ishigaki. Its only 30 minutes walk away. There are some exhibits of animals that live there, I was glad I didn't run into them. Lots of cool photo ops, and the lighting inside the caves it really well down.

The stairs are numerous, steep and slippery. The lighting is poor and somewhat cutesy, miniature colored bulbs in places. Clearance for taller people can be problematic. There have to be other safer and more interesting things to do on Ishigaki Island.

We weren't expecting much as it was the first stop of a group tour, and we've visited other limestone caves in Japan that have been disappointing. However, the beauty of the formations and variations within Ishigaki Cave and the ease of the walkthrough were a real treat. This is a live cave with with formations continuing to grow due to...
