Historic Relic Sado Gold Mine, Sado

(4.1/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
Journey back in time and into the earth at Historic Relic Sado Gold Mine, a museum detailing the history of the region's gold and silver mines. Displays and exhibits of life-size mannequins and animatronic puppets trace the last 400 years of the endeavors, from the Edo period (when convict-workers would dig by hand), up to the carts and rails of the Meiji period. Be sure to bring a jacket along as it can get chilly in the shafts, and come with some sturdy footwear. By using our Sado trip itinerary builder, you can arrange your visit to Historic Relic Sado Gold Mine and other attractions in Sado.

  • It is a gold mine boasted the world's largest production mark. It seems, almost no resumption is, strictly speaking, do not occur in the abandoned mine is like a holiday in the mountains, but mining of labor is not a good state. Go to Sado island from Tokyo, you have reached the whopping 400 km is the total length of the tunnel and the distance equivalent. Since the exhibition is less mine and walk in, each featuring different variety seen effectv.
