Travel Photo Chijifucha ( チヂフチャーガマ ) Cave

rocks, trees, cave

Cultural Property in Urasoe


The photo was taken, using a Canon G12; we traveled light this week.

The only way to convince the missus, to let me out of the house, was make a promise.

Under the influence of some powerful medicines, I had to take things slow and easy.

Doc and I, were supposedly, doing museum photography and lunch, somewhere.

With a historic map of Urasoe City in my pocket, off we went.

This cave was a bit tricky to locate, even with a map. We know how to get there, now.

One of these days, I'll go back with the Pentax and some good lenses.

This is just a tiny portion of what's actually over a 100 meter cave entrance.

The cave was housing for people centuries ago, based upon archaeological surveys.

It was used to shelter people during the Battle of Okinawa, as well.

For today, a sneak preview and, the entire history and more photos, will come later.

If, you read Japanese there's More Here.
