Nature & Scenery

Abukuma Cave

A world of illusory beauty created over millions of years, Abukuma Cave is said to have the greatest variety and the largest number of stalactites in the whole of Asia.

Visitors are always impressed by the beauty of natural creations formed over the course of 80 million years that are on display here. The largest hall in the cave, called "Takine Goten (Takine Hall)," and "Tsuki no Sekai (The Moon World)," where a stage lighting system has been installed, are particularly impressive.

The additional adventure course is also a thrilling one; you will experience crawling through a narrow passage and climbing a ladder!
