Senbutsu Cave


Limestone caves are bored out by underground water running through an area of limestone. The Senbutsu Cave is located on the extreme southeastern edge of Hiraodai: a steep slope overlooking Yukuhashi City some 300m above sea level. Senbutsu is the largest cave in Hiraodai, stretching roughly 900m in a northeasterly direction. The cave is shaped like a ravine, with a high, narrow ceiling. At its widest the cave is 10m across, and at its tallest the cave ceiling is 15m high. Near the entrance dangle about 30 individual stalactites of various sizes, offering an impressive scene. With an abundance of underground water, the cave walls continue to erode to this day.
