Mid Conference Tour
Akiyoshidai and Akiyoshido Cave
Akiyoshidai is one of the largest karst plateaus in the Japanese archipelago, with numerous limestone caves of various sizes. Akiyoshido Cave is a limestone cave located 100 to 200 m below Akiyoshidai, with a total length of more than 8,000 m. The cave has a well-developed groundwater system, which is inhabited by many cave dwelling groundwater invertebrates such as cyclopoids, amphipods, isopods, and mollusks.
Our forthcoming mid conference tour will include a visit to Akiyoshido Cave and observation of groundwater invertebrates.
