Excellent. We bought a two day bus pass and used it to visit the Shinhotaka ropeway and these caves. There is a shuttle bus for the caves from the bus stop and you simply tell the driver when you'd like to return to the bus stop for your return journey, this was a fantastic free service. An hour and a half was plenty for the caves. Add more time if you want to have a bite to eat and a coffee whilst exploring the nearby shops.

The limestone is well preserved. It's such a beautiful treasure and a must trip when you're in Takayama.

Really love here! Astounding! Maybe is a weekday and early morning. I took the bus from the Nohi bus center. ( using the 2 day pass to ropeway, is included) I was their first customer. And there is a free shuttle bus. It is at the opposite side of where you alight. The shuttle bus will bring you to the cave. The bus driver will also ask you on the pick up time to drop you back to the bus station. The cave was peaceful and quiet and you can really enjoy and immerse yourself in there. Is calming. When thought is the end of the cave, there are more things awaiting for you as you exit. Please support the natural preservation. Nature don’t last…😊

Not crowed at weekend. There is a large parking space. You can buy ticket on arrival. It’s nice but not impressive as I expected.

Fascinating limestone cave system set in an idyllic area. There are food and souvenir shops around. Conveniently there was also a free shuttle bus to the Center from the bus stop at the bottom of the mountain. You can purchase a return bus and entry ticket from the Takayama Bus Station, which saves you about 200 yen overall. Total I spent was 2570 yen. I think it’s a good price for a short day trip. I only spent about 1.5hrs here as there was no English explanation/signage for anything, but if you can read Japanese and are hungry you could definitely stay for 3. They don’t advertise it but there is a beautiful exhibition of artefacts before you go into the cave, and honestly, this exhibition was more interesting than some museums I’ve been to. And the fact entry is included is amazing. I think they should definitely advertise this as it may increase people coming. I went at midday on an Autumn Saturday and almost always had my section of cave to myself. This is not suitable for non-able bodied people, and people of larger builds as it can get quite tight in some sections of cave. Overall if you want something to do on a cloudy/rainy day, why not check it out?
