Makido Cave

Japan, 2276-2 Toyonaga Akama, Niimi City, Okayama Prefecture 719-2721

A limestone cave with a total length of approximately 450 meters that has been designated as a natural monument by the prefecture. In 1929 (Showa 4), the poet Akiko Yosano wrote a poem about it, calling it ``a cave full of strange things,'' and it came to be called Maki-do. The quiet interior of the cave is lit up with colorful LED lights, giving it a mystical atmosphere. Highlights include Ryugu Bridge, which spans the lake at the innermost part of the cave, and Senmaida, which has one of the largest rim stones in Japan. In addition, the ``Lover's Fountain'' inside the cave has been selected as a ``Lover's Sanctuary.'' The temperature is maintained at a suitable temperature, cool in summer and not cold in winter, so you can enjoy it regardless of the season. It is also famous as the filming location for the movie ``Yatsu Tomb Village.''
