Kagekiyodo is said to be the cave where Taira Kagekiyo, a warlord of the Taira clan who was defeated in the battle of Dan-no-ura, lived in hiding, and the name "Kagekiyodo" is said to be derived from Taira Kagekiyo. Fossils of fusulina, coral, and seaweed can be seen on the ceiling and walls. There is also a shrine called Ikime Hachiman, which is rare to find in a limestone cave. It is said that Taira no Kagekiyo enshrined Ikime Hachiman in gratitude for the healing of his injured eye after washing it with clean water, and it is still believed to be effective against eye diseases.
