Ryusendo is a limestone cave in the mountains of Iwaizumi Town in Iwate Prefecture. It is considered one of Japan's three great limestone caverns, with the other two being Akiyoshido in Yamaguchi Prefecture and Ryugado in Kochi Prefecture.

The explored portion stretches over 3,100m. A 30-minutes tour takes you to the 700m walkway to see a mysterious formation of limestone pillars and underground lakes with emerald-green glow. The deepest lake here is one of the most transparent lakes in the world. The walkway includes steep stairs but is mostly well done. No photos in the cave.

Very cool and interesting. Very wet, but it is a cave. Underwater lake is clear and well lit so that you can see into it's primordial depths. The path was also well laid out and lit. Only issue is that there are a lot of stairs, they are wet, and sometimes incredibly steep, so not a great place if you have mobility issues. Overall, would definitely visit again!

We took family there visiting here. They totally enjoyed it. It was raining and a bit dangerous with slipping in the cave so be careful. They sell soup at the nearby gift shop. There is also 2 restaurants in walking distance.

Crystal clear water contained within an impressive complex of caves. The explored underground lakes are 100+ meters deep with lights dropped in them to illuminate them
