History


Description

極楽洞 (Gokuraku Cave, Nirvana Cave, Paradise Cave) are part of a dinosaur theme park named 恐竜ランド (Kyōryū rando, Dinosaur Land). So the site is named 恐竜ランド極楽洞 (Dinosaur Land and Paradise Cave). You will find dinosaur animatronic in the cave and the mine, and the whole site is actually for children. This was originally a mine, but we could not find out what was mined. However, they found a cave. As a result the cave is reached through a mine tunnel.
