Underground River emerges at Shirataki pool, Itsuki 五木村白滝公園

Underground River emerges at Shirataki pool, Itsuki  五木村白滝公園
At Shirataki (White waterfalls), is a small cave with a stream running through it. It emerges into a crystal clear pool.

There used to be nothing here and you had to go in with flashlights. After 1989 or so there was a restaurant serving yamame ("mountain-eye" - like a trout), a new park built next to the cave, and a walkway with lights allowing an easy walk into the cave. You paid Y100 on a timer to turn the lights on.

Now, the restaurant is gone; all that's left of the park is the restrooms, and the Y100 electric switch doesn't work. There is a new restaurant across the road from the park that is sometimes open.
