Ana Kami Shōnyūdō (God Hole Limestone Cave) is a small karst cave. It seems to have no regular open hours, the key is available from the old woman living next to the entrance. The cave is developed as a show cave, has trails and electric light, but seems to be a little strenuous with many steps and narrow and low parts. The tourist path ends at a natural entrance to the cave higher up, which offers a nice view on the landscape. The cave is noted for a bat colony and snakes, obviously feeding off the fallout of the bats.
