This cave is the largest among the Yana no Kisho (Places of odd sight with Eight Caves), which were carved out over many years by the harsh waves of the Sea of Japan, located in Shiroyama Park, Takahama Town, Fukui Prefecture. It was named Meikyo-do (Mirror Cave) because the horizon seen through the cave hole looks like the reflection in the mirror. It is said that Ashikaga Yoshimitsu (1358-1408), the third shogun of the Ashikaga shogunate, highly praised the view when he visited there in 1393.

I've visited it several times before, but it's always a nice place to have a very clean lawn.
You can hike extremely lightly, which can go around in about 10 minutes.
When I went there for the first time in a while today, there was a statue of a mysterious dinosaur. Why are dinosaurs here? Do you have anything to do with it? …It is unlikely.
Is it a shooting spot for Instagram?

It is located in Shiroyama Park and Shiroyama Beach. The Sea of ​​Japan over the cave looks like a painting and is beautiful. Worth seeing once.
