This was pretty weak. There's hardly anything to see and you reach the exit 5-10 minutes after three to four passages or rooms. Save your spelunking for somewhere else.

It was really surprising this place! Is really magic! I really liked the blue light inside the cove! I supposed it was a little bit bigger but it doesn't change my mind!

We took the Viator tour to the ice cave (including Mt Fuji in the morning). The caves are interesting and worth a visit. The website does not really prepare you for the level of difficulty of the cave. It is not advanced, but it is certainly not for a complete beginner either. We were provided with all the equipment we... More

Ice in the lowest cavern in the early autumn. Interesting how ice forms. 5-6 metre section where you need to crawl through. Height of the tunnel is about desk height only and the floor is wet. Wear the hard hats provided unless you want a nasty bump on your noggin.

We only read about this at the lSt minute and decided to drive there after our visit to Mt Fuji. It's amazing that there is ice there all year round. Quite a few stairs to climb and parts where you need to crouch down. You're provided with a hard hat upon entry.

This is an interesting place to go to if you're in the vicinity. Entrance fee is ¥350 for an adult and from the start you descend into the freezing caves. It is pretty narrow and low at points so I would only recommend for fit people however saying that it is a very short route. Don't expect to spend too... More

A short but interesting cave to visit. A vertical cave lit up by dim lighting. Steps are wet and some parts are slippery. Do wear proper footwear and helmets provided as some parts the tunnel becomes narrower and you may need to duck-walk or crawl. Try not to rub against the tunnel walls as they are rough and may cause... More

My wife and I liked this but it was definitely a tight fit in the cave tunnel on the way down. We were surprised how one couple made it through with there little ones but they did it. Fun adventure for nearly all ages.

I wouldn't go again, nor would I call it a must-see. Very small cave, not a lot to see. But it is interesting that it can maintain ice throughout the summer, so that's something. Probably a better family attraction than solo traveller.
