THE LARGEST KARST PLATEAU IN JAPAN. 秋吉台。

Akiyoshidai is the largest karst plateau in Japan. It located at Mi-ne city in Yamaguchi.



Akiyoshidai.




This plateau is made by ancient coral reefs. 




Becoming the plateau,it takes about 200 million years.




There are many limestone rocks in this area.


There are about 400 limestone caverns in this area.
Akiyoshido is the largest limestone cavern in our country.



The entrance of Akiyoshido.




I took mono tone photos in this cavern.















The reflection.


We stayed a nice suite when we were in Yamaguchi.


A Japanese room, a bed room and a living room.



With a hot spring bath room.



A heated swimming pool only for us.

Thanks for visiting this post.

  1. Wow! All your photos are beautiful with plateau that comes from a 200 million years history. I love the caves and its stalactites!!

    You both really had a good hotel to sleep with such a big luxury room with private hot spring and a private swimming pool. You just had a romantic honeymoon with your wife.

  2. この辺りは大昔は海だったのですね。長~い歴史、広大な大地と限りない空の秋吉台、ぜひ行ってみたい。鍾乳洞は苦手かもしれませんがカメラもってならそれも忘れるかもしれません。リフレクションの色も深みがありますね。毎回のゴージャスなホテルや旅館、景色だけでなくどこへ泊まられたかも興味の対象です。

      こんばんは。ありがとうございます。天気がイマイチでしたがここに行ったときは快晴でした。旅館は海や山から離れていましたが、温泉は源泉かけ流しでした。

  3. I'm glad I can see the photos of the cavern and don't have to enter! It's hard to fathom so many millions of years. Your suite was lovely. Even your own pool!

  16. It is funny how you get these ideas of what a place looks like. Japan does not look like what I picture. I need to visit there to see the different landscapes of Japan, but until then I am so glad you share them here.

  22. Hello Minoru, The rocky landscape looks very lifeless and barren. The views from the cave are magnificent. Looks like a very interesting place to visit.
