Video Games in Reality : Waitomo Glow Worm Caves

Hi! Did you remember about Satorl Marsh? If you don’t, click here.

I found a place on earth that resembles the Satorl Marsh and Tephra Cave of the Xenoblade Chronicles. And it is located on New Zealand. The place is called Waitomo Glow Worm Caves.

immediate bucket list entry.

The idea of the glowing cave resembles Tephra Cave’s.

the glow itself really reminds me of this…


Satorl Marsh!

and the origin of the glow which comes from glow worms (as the name stated), reminds me of this..


A region in Ether Mine, called Glowmoss Lake (+Test Pit) (which the glow also comes from an organism, the glow moss).

For you guys who wanted to visit this place, this is some of it’s information.

Address: 39 Waitomo Caves Rd, Waitomo Caves, Otorohanga 3943, New Zealand
Phone:+64 7-878 8228
And it’s opens from Monday to Sunday, 9A.M. to 5P.M.

See you!

(n/b : I didn’t get paid by Waitomo Glow Worm Cave to promote. just saying. :P)



Where on Video Games : Satorl Marsh

hi 😀 while FKC has just told you guys about a move in FF called the ‘Big Bang’, right now i wanted to tell you about this place on Xenoblade Chronicles which i love the most….so far. there are so many beautiful places on Xenoblade despite of it’s lack of amazing graphics (well, if you compare it with PS3’s or XBOX360’s..) So here is it, the Satorl Marsh.


when you come into this place on day time… i know what you’re thinking. this place is not that good, in fact, it’s creepy. i totally agree. that is also my thought when i first come here. i dislike marshes and caves, so at first i wasn’t really fond of the place. but the real beauty comes when it starts changing from day to night.


I KNOW RIGHT! although that one is just a CG picture, the game version is as magical as that one.



the game version has less vibrant colors, but trust me, i still fell in love with it everytime it turns into this. and what’s better is the music as it’s changing from day to night.

check the song here

so yeah, one of my favorite place on video games. i’ll update some more when i continue playing on June. see you guys 🙂
