Scenes from the Matsuda Cave in Ginoza Okinawa, Japan

Public Tours Are Now Available


If adventure and nature travel is your thing, this one's for you.

Probably, not many five star hotel types will visit these caves; their loss, I'd have to say.

walkway entrance to cave

The entrance way is real fancy and easy to navigate.

It may get you wondering why they gave you boots and a miner's helmet to wear.

walkway inside cave

Once you leave that boardwalk and, some natural light, you'll figure it out.

There are plenty of places, wading in water and banging your noggin, take place.

The staff members are helpful and concerned about everyone's safety.

But, they don't necessarily speak English.

A few hundred meters inside the cave, the only lights come from the helmets.

If you enjoy getting off the beaten path, this might be the place for you.

But, if you require more than one airplane seat, go hangout with the five star hotel crowd !
