My wife and I visited here on a recent trip to Izu Peninsula. Quite good fun. I did not know Japan had a gold mining industry. We got to pan for gold as well. Good place for adults and kids alike

Delightful old display about gold mining in Japan. Worth while visit just to see the figures and mechanics of display. Some interesting info and a good long walk underground. Easy access.

土肥金山が、佐渡金山に次ぐ日本第2位の金山で、かつてはとても賑わっていたことを、この施設に入って初めて知りました。生憎の雨で観光できなかったため、この施設に立ち寄ったのですが、雨宿りにはちょうど良いと感じました。 I knew a fact that a gold mine in Sado was the biggest one in Japan and one in Toi was the second for the first time. This area used to be bustling thanks to this gold mine. The reason why I entered into...More
