The Inazumi Underwater Cave was formed 300 million years ago during the Paleozoic era. It took its current form 300,000 years ago when it was submerged by a great eruption of Mount Aso. There is lots to see inside this underwater limestone cave, unusual worldwide, including underwater stalactites, corallite, the “Bell Hall,” where bell-shaped sculptures were formed on the ceiling, and helictites.
There are countless stalactites, deep pools with a depth of over 40 meters, and clear streams that gush from unknown recesses of the cave. The contrast of the beautiful, ever-changing stalactites takes visitors into a world of illusions. The temperature inside the caves is 16 degrees all year round - cool in the summer and warm in the winter, making this underwater limestone cave wonderful to see all year round.
