  • Way down in the sunlight kiyotaki IC iroha slope towards the left turn, in about 20 minutes. If straight iroha slope goes is a fashionable summer resort, ashio image is true vice versa. But 1 degree with thoughts and reach the town of ashio, there was a town deserted sepia still. It's nice here too was not including tourists, ashio copper mine tourist trolley car ride?? It is a feeling. I could not believe to work at say 1200 kg, and the total length of the tunnel, but. Up in the grief of the lives of the miners, mineral pollution woes, the head was stained with sepia. But this same plant, don't avert your eyes never-time face up to the reality of the past and do not repeat 2 times and I think it was.

  • I felt content to experience the scale of difficulty and learn more about the history of the ashio copper mine rather than working in the copper mines and the role copper mine. I didn't so much touch as to pollution. You can learn about the people working in the copper mines by listening to the explanation see while walking the cave, realistic doll. Holes were used during the mining of copper, was surprised at the length of invisible holes ahead. There was no through-dong station is ashio copper mine tour and ashio history museum soon see not the GW among people. Watarase keikoku thought it might be variously tour is you main Valley Railway tram ride is a different story, but more families come by train stop on the drive.

Substations, street-dong station is turned into ruins and copper facilities (refining factory may be) now is not working.

  • Even on a weekday, tourists are sparse. Bought a ticket climbed into the truck and headed into the mine down. Way station (? ) In the release manually-powered car Dolly into the mine shaft. Tens of meters or now is the end. "Eh? Here? "Visit the walk from there had been rode a truck you can see what it is, but it was. Divided into eras is a deserted theme park-style takes the ore work the puppets is easier to understand. Mine in cool do you seems so cool even in the summer. Exhibits of the Museum of wind at the end was very nice, very much appreciated old penny how to make. Think installing minutes down in the truck and go, just like when or the stairs climbing on their own through the souvenir shop, outside was a devilish. Senior sales staff will encourage variety. Hay inclined plane was disappointing, but I feel good about the exhibit is.

Where to stay in Nikko

Rich in history, culture, and nature, you'll be pleased to find that Nikko also boasts a rich variety of accommodations. Competition may be pretty fierce at peak times, but make your reservation early and you'll be able to find somewhere to sleep that suits your style. Luxury hotels and boutiques with "onsen" (traditional Japanese spas) never stray too far from the river, while hostels and guesthouses tend to be tucked away on side streets, and up in the north of town. Mid-range and standard hotels lie close to the main train stations and by the main plazas.
