Akiyoshidai & Shuhodo

"A promise to thrill visitors with their natural history and fantastic sights."

Brief Introduction

Akiyoshidai plateau is the largest karst plateau in Japan and is a beautiful place in all seasons. Akiyoshidai and the Shuhodo cavern, positioned to the south of the plateau, are located in the Akiyoshidai Quasi-National Park and are designated natural monuments.

At 300 million years old, Akiyoshidai was formed when a coral reef was pushed up to the earth’s surface and the exposed limestone eroded through wind and rain. Visitors can enjoy a 360 degree view of the plateau with karst formations among native grasses and wildflowers from the centrally-located observation deck.

Shuhodo cavern is Asia’s largest limestone cave. Although it is 10-kilometers in length, approximately one kilometer length of the huge cave is open to the public.

Although Akiyoshidai and Shuhodo cavern are off the beaten path, they promise to thrill visitors with their natural history and fantastic sights.
