  • Akiyoshidai is the national park of the Karst plateau, the largest limestone plateau in Japan, which has been formed over a long period of 200 million years since ancient times. The 100 meters underground is One of the largest caves in Japan, and Akiyoshi-dong, a special natural monument. The temperature is 17 degrees throughout the year, and the humidity is 99-100%. On the way to the limestone cave, which is about one kilometer away, it is a series of surprises in the mysterious and natural shape. Stalactites take 250 years to grow by 2cm, while the golden pillars are 15 meters high and 4 meters wide.
