The shuttle bus provided from/to public bus stop. The cave is about 800m and needs 30-40 minutes to complete the tour. It's interesting to see the whole area was under the water long time ago.

If you visit the Hida Daishonyudo Cave, remember to bring a waterproof jacket in the summer as the Cave can be quite damp and chilly!

The cave is fairly uninteresting - I've seen more interesting ones in other parts of Japan (and in other parts of the world). However, before the cave there is a collection of various relics, riches and ornate models, many of which are stunningly designed. If...More

First you can see the collection of a rich old man who collected a bunch of random stuff (gold, fossils, Noh masks...). Then it's into the caves, which are cold and wet. It's almost like it's raining in there sometimes! Be ready! You walk up...More

The place offers a nice walk, first through a museum then through caves. The museum is completely random (within the same room you discuss politics, weapons, animals, arts, architecture, history...). The caves are well arranged with (unnecessary?) colorful lights. If you go there for a...More

This is recommendable tour, about 20 mins drive from Takayama. You enjoy exploring inside the natural cave, nicely paved the walking trail with detailed map and audio guide available. A bit difficult to access by public transport(there is a scheduled bus, but very few services...More

I have been to many caves and unfortunately this one did not stand out. It's not worth the trip and entrance fee. But if you do decided to go make sure you take a sweater or jacket because it's cold in there!
