Gyokusendo Cave Path

Although the Gyokusendo Cave at Okinawa World totals an underground maze of over 5km the accessible walkway only runs for about 890 meters. Walking this 890 meter pathway will still take more than one hour, especially if you stop and take time to observe all of the amazing features along the way. Another special feature of the Gyokusendo Cave at Okinawa World is the Awamori (Okianwan Liquor) that is distilled there. But this is no normal Awamori it is made from Habu Snake and fermented for 5 years. Because the limestone caves stay at a constant temperature of 25 degrees all year long as well as a consistent humidity it makes for an ideal environment for Awamori’s fermentation process.
