  • We visited at the end of the year. You can learn about the history of Iwami ginzan silver mine and its mining technology. You can have a 30 kg of silver ingots. Even before seeing the field. and to learn and do. We did go to mine the ore mine ・ryugenjimabu up. But to go there to go on foot or by bike from Iwami ginzan Silver Mine (Tourist Office) do not. In the car while not to step needs attention. I thought with the Iwami ginzan Silver Mine Park car park is only about 30 cars can't Park, so going by bus (5 minutes) from the World Heritage Centre will do. However, on the day of the World Heritage Centre today was because you say you can park your car at went to the Park. It is recommended that becomes the starting point where congestion is so go take in advance.

  • Many of those visiting the Iwami ginzan silver mine, while they want to visit the step (hime), personally I think. But to go there was ryuugenn run walk step season we visited are generally open between relying on bike or on foot. We first visited World Heritage Centre is located in the mountains carved mountains, destroying the environment at the end, far away from the Omori district in the heart of the Iwami ginzan silver mine tour and where. Parking in front of the district from its World Heritage Centre Omori district back in the car and have only to travel by car. Not only from head bombarded bike or walk to step in between. Reason for Omori District residents ' conservation. Should be more strongly told staff members of the World Heritage Center. From the parking lot in front of Omori area while stomping the reluctance in our 40's even if you think, walking distance, and eventually gave up the visit. From the Tokai region between visited the Iwami ginzan silver mine, despite the step between without a car so you have to give up going to step in between tiring going to step in. I want to say that tourist brochures placed official homepage and throughout Japan, why, "while can be reached only by foot or by bicycle to the step. Or your old car to be assumed are impossible if you are not confident in the strength "and that cannot be written or. And Add (1) to a respectable end of the environmental damage the World Heritage Centre to make (2) environmental protection purposes from Omori district between car ban you just to step (3) Omori District residents in economic terms can be done, such as food and beverage outlets in the district, directly headed Bush clover, resigned the Iwami ginzan Silver Mine feel it difficult to understand the contradictions of 3 points that just prior to riding a car easily, while.

  • Okubo rattles was like a small pass in the end of August, however, despite the weekend walking tour. The book goes from the Kanto area, so there is a must and even a little futile. However, if you do not join Okubo for walking tours in the expensive tour probably Iwami ginzan Silver Mine attraction to halve. Where the Center to be studying in its own way, but it is mere knowledge level, still want to burn with sensory memory. Okubo walking tour bus down, starting from the mountain. Mount depth of Izumo, while guided historic site during the Edo period. And between ayumu Okubo entrance to get inside. Here is cave in because to be honest just a cave. Only guide and history feel is worthwhile. Carried the rough stones dug to take silver in the pit, dug a hole, digging proceeded to maneuver, and perceived wisdom of hundreds of years ago and the scar is the world heritage site I think. If there is time also old please. And if you join between ayumu Okubo ・ryugenjimabu unsatisfactory even better I'm valve Guide.

  • It's a real shame that tourist stay on the Pacific coast when visiting Japan. There are so many great places along the coast of the Japanese sea. Iwami Ginzan is definitely one of them. Great place to be and experienc Japanese history, influencing he whole world at that time.
  • wow, what so beautiful the mines very very happiness in this mine you just shown this place .Journey through the creepy-cool tunnels of Japan’s largest mine in history.
  • World heritage in Japan
  • Not as interesting as mines in other countries.
  • Just know that vast land 700 stuff alone is said to have a mine, but in the lush forests in potsri tunnel entrance ginzan silver mine site is natural and integrated. Intrigued, and 10 minutes of story-telling in itself. Seem to teach that intersects the drumstick of nature amid the pitiful mine has become the bald mountains in the world, and integrated mine ignored once nature from the time. Walking in the air purified in the forest and remembered the Machu Picchu in Peru. Dim brought prosperity, but returning to the original natural now. Once again, good time for the visit.
