Dragon dragon caves!! Ryugashido located an hour bus ride outside of Hamamatsu city is apparently Japan’s most famous cave. It was my first time seeing real stalagmites/stalactites.

 Something I wasn’t clear on was whether dragons lived in the cave, or the cave itself WAS a dragon. I will tell you, when I got to the part called “The interior of a dragon”, where the path narrowed and got dark and damp, it really did feel like a dragon’s belly.
