Fujido is designated as a prefectural natural monument. It was discovered 1,200 years ago. There was dense untouched forest, and many wild beasts lived there at the time. One day, villagers saw a herd of monkeys making loud noises as they looked inside a big hole on the ground. So the villagers went inside the hole and subsequently found a cave. This is how Fujido is said to have been discovered.
About 400 years ago, Fujido was a place of training for religious seekers. In the 1960's, Ueno-mura decided to develop the area as one of their sightseeing spots. It is now called Kawawa Shizen Koen (Kawawa Natural Park). Along with Fujido, the Ueno Sky Bridge, auto-camp site, camping site, and other tourist spots attract many visitors.
