We were surprised how nice it was to see this work of nature and it's free! Not many people during the week day in December but I'm sure that it's crowded during the summer as there are some very nice beaches next to this cave.

Very beautiful to explore around this area - there is currently only one bus that goes here from Shimoda station, leaves at 10:30 ish and returns around 1430 ish, but you can walk to Kisame bus stop through the beautiful and quiet town of Touji for more buses that travel in between Shimoda and Minami/Matsuzaki on the main road.

Dragon Palace Cave, or Ryugu-kutsu is located in Shimoda, Shizuoka and can only be accessible by car or bike but it is really worth visiting because the cave was naturally engraved by sea waves and the doom is now open...

Very nice place for a walk. You can feel the power of the ocean and big waves. You can also go fishing there

Especially if you're a geology nerd or a fan of hiking around small towns. We walked there from our hotel (Tokyu hotel Shimoda) in the morning and were back before lunch. Passed by several nice beaches and really felt the cave was worth the walk. But then again we walk everywhere...

Truly one of the Mysterious place of mother nature. Ryugu Sea Cave has its own mystery from its location to the view from in side and above. It has very easy access as it is situated by the road. you just have to climb down the stairs. ( just two mins and not that steep or deep) Once you climbed... More

just a short stop, but definitely worth it! the cave is incredible and the view from the top is absolutely beautiful! make sure to bring sleds (from the daiso, or we just used a boogie board) to sled down the sand hill nearby! we loved it!
