Adventure course

Ryugado Cave offers new routes and exciting caverns to explore.

  • Halfway through the general viewing course you can challenge yourself with the adventure course. The course extends about 200 metres as you crawl through narrow passages, climbing wooden ladders and climbing without help.
  • It takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes and costs start from 1000 yen. Why don’t you try exploring the dark caverns of the cave with a navigator? Bookings are required by the day before. You can rent helmets and headlamps for free while overalls and long boots are 1000 yen.
  • The hours for the adventure course are different to the normal opening hours.
    When making your booking please double check the times.
  • Only the adventure course requires a booking. The general viewing course and the Ryugado Cave Total Darkness Experience Tour do not require a booking.

Please be careful.

  • Groups or individuals who are unable to speak Japanese cannot do the adventure course.

Ryugado Cave Total Darkness Experience Tour

  • The Total Darkness Experience Tour extends along 1 kilometre of the cave. The first 400 metres from the entrance you cannot really see stalactites and stalagmites, but this is where we turn off the lights. With only the light of paper lanterns you can experience the complete darkness of the cave.
  • Every second Sunday of the month from 10-11am for one hour, except August (last entry is 10:40am).
  • Along the last 600 metres of the course you can see many stalactites and stalagmites lit up with lights. This course is the same as the general viewing course but with twice the excitement. Prices are the same as the general viewing course.
