Genbudo Cave Park

Genbudo Cave Park consists of five caves, four of which are named after the four gods of the four directions. The caves were formed 1.6 million years ago when the lava from a volcanic explosion cooled forming beautiful columnar joints that resemble a honeycomb pattern. The caves were designated as national natural monuments in 1931. The area is also well known as being the place where Quaternary reversed polarity was first discovered.
