This is actually not a normal show cave. It is a strange cafe with bonsai garden, located in the middle of Kin Kin Town, on top of a steep cliff overlooking the city and offering a view to the sea. The cafe is built into the garden with many weird artworks and desks and tables made of driftwood, found at the beach and collected by the grandfather of the current owner. The are antique object, buddhas and modern art, and there are trails through the bonsai garden below showing even more strange artworks and virtually thousands of well kept bonsais. The cliff face is full of karst caves with speleothems, which are integrated into the whole ensemble. The cave chambers are used for meditation and as temple, to store goods and as part of the shop.
