LIMESTONE CAVE

鍾乳洞[SHŌNYŪDŌ]

A cave created by erosion of limestone formed by sedimentation of corals and shells by rainwater or groundwater. Japan has many limestone caves that attract many tourists with their peculiar beauty miraculously created by nature over billions of years. Adventure-like tours are offered at some caves that let the participants crawl through narrow passages, climb up ladders, and feel like Indiana Jones!
