Fugaku Wind Cave, Fujikawaguchiko-machi

#3 of 16 in Nature in Fujikawaguchiko-machi
Geologic Formation · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Wander into the depths of Fugaku Wind Cave, one of many lava caves that pepper in the local forest. With a total length of 201 m (659 ft) and a height of 8.7 m (28.5 ft), you can explore the cave relatively quickly, but don't hang around too long, as the inner cave has a year-round temperature of around 0 to 3 C (32 to 37.4 F). Observe large icicles lit with colorful lights, and note the lack of echo while you talk, with sound quickly absorbed by the basaltic walls of the cave. Wear sturday shoes to explore the subterranean world, as the icy conditions can create slippery spots. Before you head to Fujikawaguchiko-machi, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Fujikawaguchiko-machi route planner, to make sure you see all that Fujikawaguchiko-machi has to offer, including Fugaku Wind Cave.

  • Cool place. Really neat history. Quick 15 min tour. Only approximately 600 yen. Watch your head if on the taller scale. A little cold so bring a jacket. English is spoken by the ticket folks.
  • Very cool cave but also definitely a touristy place. Recommend seeing it but also seeing other caves in the region to get a better, less commercial sense of what they are like. There is plenty of parking and the admission fee is relatively cheap ad well. Make sure to grab a safety helmet so that you dont hit your head!
