the cave where the samurai general retreated in

Kagekiyodō is the cave named from lore of a samurai general “Kagekiyo”. He was defeated and retreated into the cave about 800 years ago. The highlights of the cave were the beautiful walls and ceiling as if some patterns are engraved, and fossils of corals and others.
Trying the adventure course is highly recommended. You will proceed to the dark, inner part of the cave relying just on a flashlight.
A camping site and a hot spring facility are located right beside the cave.
