I’d like to challenge caving this year with 5 of my friends. Please tell me about a good place and a hotel with a big bathroom in the Kansai area.

I learned about caving (exploring a cave) recently and I’d love to experience it. I’m thinking of challenging it with 5 men and women mixed friends before it becomes cold. After getting tired, we’d like to relax in a hot-spring or a big bathroom. Please tell me of a hotel where we can book now with a reasonable price and a clean room. The place is in the Kansai area.

the natural monument, Kawachi-Fuketsu (wind cave) in the Shiga prefecture

I recommend caving in the natural monument Kawachi-Fuketsu in the Shiga prefecture. The steps, the rails and the lights have been maintained to be secure for a family and the beginners. How about Comfort Hotel Hikone for your stay? The Hikone station is in front, so the access is very convenient. The breakfast was free. Even if you drive there, there are related parking sites nearby.

the hot-spring hotel where you can hear the murmur of the river in the mountains in the Nara prefecture

The surroundings are mountains and the quiet makes you forget the noise of big cities. You can go in the small caves nearby, but exploring the Godaimatsu Limestone Cave in the Tenkawa Village in the Yoshino-gun in the Nara prefecture is fun. It is a hot-spring hotel in the mountains and it has been renovated to be an excellent one in the natural environment with the wooden smell.

There is an “Exploring the Cave” tour, departing from the AOITORI hotel reception.

There is a cave which you can explore in the Hachikita hot-spring. The “Asoview” conducts the tour, “The entrance to the quaint world! The heart is pounding as we explore the cave through the darkness”. The tour departs from the front-desk nearby hotel. The recommended hotel has Japanese-styled rooms and a hot-spring. The tour will last until November. If you book it now, you’ll be all right.

delicious, cheap with hot-spring

The foods which have stuck to the local ingredients such as abalone, local fish-sashimi and Kumano-beef are excellent. The smooth hot-spring is popular. From now on, the natural Kue (long tooth fish)-cuisine is on season. The charge is reasonable. The Totsui Limestone Cave is nearby. Even if you are a beginner, you can enjoy caving.

Hachi-kita Highlands

The tour which has been organized by the group, “AOITORI”. The tour is for exploring the dark cave which has been created by the rock-stones of the coal mine ruins.
The hotel doesn’t have a hot-spring, but as it is a hotel on the ski-slope, they have a bath with natural water. It has been run by a family, so you can enjoy the homely atmosphere.

the natural hot-spring

The hotel in the Totsugawa Village in the surrounding nature is proud of the natural hot-spring and the local cuisine. The open-air hot-spring in front of the river, the bath inside the hotel, the lying down bath and the reserved-bath (cypress and umedaru) are among 8 different kinds of baths in all. They are all natural hot-springs. The meal cooked by the Kishu ingredients and fresh water is the countryside –styled high-class Japanese cuisine. It’s very delicious. You can try caving. Have a nice trip!
