1. The beautiful entrance and precautions 👩🏻‍🚒

Ice cave, the entrance of this wonderful place is in the middle of the forest. 🌳🌲🌳🌞

Using stairs you can begin the expedition, this cave has a vertical structure and could be so narrow, so is necessary the use of the helmet, if you don't know how to use it you can ask for help to the people fo the entrance, but remember to use it at every moment, the helmet doesn't have an extra price so you don't have to worry about it.

In the other hand, the structure of wid cave is horizontal so walling is easier, in the wind cave the helmet is no an obligation but I prefer to use it at all the moment.

2. Frozen treasures ❄️❄️

These two caves are natural lava tunnels and inside of you can feel so cold temperature, around 3°C even in summer, because of this inside there is natural formed iced. ❄️❄️


The ice was cut up in blocks and stacked in piles in Showa era (between 1926 to 1989) to use it as a natural refrigerator for the keeping of the eggs of silkworm and seeds.


By this way, the food and cocoons kept their quality.

In these caves you can also see the different forms that the lava have after the eruption of a volcano!


Is a wonderful experience that you can not miss. 👀👌🏻💯
