Yamaguchi Prefecture is in the westernmost of the main island of Japan, and it is surrounded by the sea.
Mine City is in the center of Yamaguchi Prefecture, that is the only city in Yamaguchi Prefecture that is not faced to the sea, and it is famous that there is “Akiyoshidai”, the largest karst plateau in Japan.
Karst plateau is the land eroded by the rain or groundwater from the plateau, including ingredients that are well soluble in water.
Akiyoshidai is 200 to 400 meters above the sea level, and there is the large karst plateau that is 4,500 hectares.

Under Akiyoshidai, that is 100 to 200 meters below, there is “Akiyoshido”, that is the largest cave in Japan designated as the special national monument.
Its length is about 8km, the promenade is maintained in 1km among it, and you will feel like exploring the cave if you go there.

Even Akiyoshido is cold in the summer, so you need something to put on.
The ground has often water in, so also you need shoes to walk easily and closes that has no need to be clean.
After enjoying powerful Akiyoshidai and Akiyoshido, we recommend you to stay at “Yuda Hot Spring”, that takes 30 minutes in a car from there.
