Chikura Cavern (千座の岩屋)

A wonderful cavern created by the hand of nature

Taneyaku Area Nature, Seasonal Flowers and Scenic Spots

The coastlines extending along Tanegashima's east and west give a completely different impression. Along the east coast you can see an eroded rocky shoreline which has been washed clean by the Pacific Ocean's rough waves.
Near the Hamada swimming beach, at the Hamada Beach is Tanegashima's only sea-eroded cavern 'Chikuranoiwaya', and it's so big it seems 1000 people could sit inside.
At low tide, by all means enter the cave to experience the seabreeze, and sounds of the waves, and the wonderful atmosphere created by the hand of nature.
* The cave is only accessable at low tide
