Otaki Limestone Cave

Spelunking in Gifu's best series of limestone caves

South of Gujo Hachiman town center is the largest network of caves in the region, the most accessible is Otaki Limestone Cave.

How to Get There

You can reach the cave by train and then taxi.

There are no direct public transport links to the cave. From Gujo Hachiman Station, a taxi takes around 20 minutes.

Exploring the cave

Otaki Limestone Cave is well lit, although there is a lot of water around so the rocks can get slippery. It can also get cold inside, so dress accordingly. It takes about 30 minutes to walk the 700-meter stretch that is open to the public. When you reach the 30-meter high waterfall, you're nearly at the end.

Fascinating stalagtite formations

Many of the stalactites have grown into recognizable shapes and been given names such as “Decorated Cake” or the “Leaning Tower of Pisa.”
