  Hiraodai Plateau, Kitakyushu
by kiwigal_1

In Kokura Minami there is an awesome area called Hiraodai which is full of Limestone Rocks (they kind of look like sheep grazing).
Hiraodai Park is Japan's best example of a karst plateau formation, 22 square kilometers in area and rising 400 to 600 meters above sea level, providing views of the surrounding mountains.
The park is a landscape of hills and mountains dotted with pure white limestone, a super example of karst deposits. It also contains quiet and beautiful forests, a meditative waterfall, and the Ojika and Senbutsu Shonyudo stalactite caves which cost 800 yen to enter.
