DETAILS

    hrs Estimate Duration

Discover nature's creative ability to carve into limestone when you visit Ryugado Caves and the manmade, impressive Kochi Castle.


Explore Ryugado Caves, on the slopes of Mount Sampo. Ryugado cave is one of the three major beautiful limestone caves in Japan, with approximately 175 million years of history. This cave is registered in the list of national heritage and sites. Artifacts and earthenware have been found here, indicating that the caves were inhabited about 2000 years ago.


You would enjoy not only the dynamics of the natural stone pillars, but also interesting formations such as God’s vessel. Most rock formations are named after figures of Japanese mythology. In addition to its remarkable formations, the caves are home to about 100 animal species, which include bats, shrimp and crabs.


Visit Kochi castle, the city’s most impressive landmark, offering splendid views of the city. First constructed at the beginning of the 17th Century, the building has survived many invasions, fires and natural disasters of the post feudal age. Reconstructed in 1748 after a devastating fire, today stands as the symbol of Kochi. It has also been selected as one of Japan's 100 best castles, and designated important cultural property. It is also the only 12 remaining Japanese castles to have retained both its original inner keep and palace. During your visit, you’ll learn of its fascinating history and enjoy its wealth of local treasures and historical objects.


Need to Know:

Note: There are approximately 780 steps to manage at the caves and approximately 200 at Kochi Castle. The course inside the caves is steep and slippery; sport or rubber soled shoes, with good traction, are highly recommended. As temperature in the cave is cool and there is a chance of dripping water, a light rain jacket or rain poncho is recommended. Parts of the cave are low and narrow, therefore, this tour is not recommended for persons who suffer from claustrophobia. Cave management prohibits photography in the areas inhabited by bats.
