Wind cave

This picture was taken in the cave which is cold place all the year round.
In 864 the cave was made from Mt.Fuji’s lava flow.
The cave was used for keeping the silkworm and the seeds as a natural refrigerator.
It was about 1 ponit centigrade when we went in despite of 27 points centigrade outside.

I live in Kawagoe-city Saitama-prefecture Japan. There are many traditional warehouses in Kawagoe. So many Japanese and the people from overseas come to sightseeing. http://www.koedo.or.jp/foreign/english/index.html
