The Hida Daishonyudo Cave is a limestone cave that covers a length of 800 meters located at a height of 900 meters- making this the highest limestone cave in Japan! Walk through the pathway laid through the cave and see the gorgeous structures and shapes that come to life with warm lights. The stalactites and stalacmites that resemble frozen ice only scratch the surface of the cave’s imperfect beauty while the Aishin Spot that connects cave 1 with the cave 2 and illuminated by LED lights, is a fabulous addition to the place.

  • Fun commercialized limestone cave. ¥1100 admission. Recommended for couples / adult visitors; not really for kids. Inside can be somewhat wet so dress appropriately. I visited in September and it was 10℃ in the cave. The facility provides umbrellas on rainy days because it will drip inside from the rain. Expect to spend about 2 hours.

  • Felt like you were spelunking in another world. Lot of fun. Also some cool exhibits of japan treasures like gold, pearls and fine crafts.

  • You will be amazed on how the natural blue ice along the hilly area - not forgetting the big 'wok' which they used to cook for the whole village during festive season. Bear in mind, you will need to have a strong legs to hike up the stairs or road towards the cave. Definitely worth the trip to visit.

  • Cave showed beautiful views of rock formation. Steps safety was taken care of. Outside cave another great view of waterfall and garden and statues. Tells very much of culture activity of the place.

  • Passing there on my way from Takayama city centre to Hirayu Onsen, spended about 2 hours there. The cave is just average. Not a must visit place. Photos taking along the path from the exit to the carpark.
