Yesterday afternoon I took a bus to a lava forest, created by a Mount Fuji erruption around 800 years ago. As you walk down the steps into the cave the cool hits you! It stays at a constant zero degrees Celsius, so having no shoes to my name my feet were pretty cold! There were big icicles in the lee and at some points the roof of the cave was only waist height. It’s called the wind cave because for lighting they used to take a candle in with them. The candle would then blow out as they entered the cave. It wasn’t actually blown out by the wind but by the change in humidity.
