Hida Great Limestone cave① | Takayama



Do you know Limestone-cave?

It is a cave made of limestone eroded by water.

Limestone cave was in the sea long ago.

I think that it is very interesting. How about you?

This time is about Hida Great Limestone cave. It is in Gifu Prefecture. Gifu prefecture is the prefecture next to Nagoya city.

This time, I will introduce you to this Hida Great Limestone cave!

Around the Hida Great limestone cave

I arrived at the Hida limestone cave. It was in a vast mountain.

The flag says “Hida Daisyounyudou”. This means the Hida limestone cave.

There are restaurants near the parking lot. I forgot to take a photo, but it was cheap and delicious. There were croquettes and Hida beef set meals.
Unlike tourist spots such as Tokyo and Kyoto, here you can eat local Japanese cuisine.

This is a photo spot. It ’s a cute mascot character.

It is written as the holy land of lovers.

This is “Sukuna Nabe”!
It says “Japan ’s largest pot”.
This is a huge pan with a diameter of 6.1m and a weight of 9 tons.

It is not used now, but this pan was actually used!

However, now it seems that it is no longer used due to aging.

After that, it seems to be donated and exhibited here.

This is the way back from the limestone cave.
It ’s very long.

That’s all for this time.
Next time, we will actually enter the limestone cave!
