Historic Relic Sado Gold Mine, Sado

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.

  • Sado tourist attractions, the most famous tourist attractions. We toured with a road swing. In cool do are kept to 10 degrees, seems to have been as well as liquor store. So, Stanford will tour around slowly. Doyu % units of time there is 7 minutes and less. Let's go to the slightly uphill, but look!

  • Pretty interesting, though most of the signage is in Japanese so it may a little less interesting to visit for those that do not read the language. However, you will be plenty intrigued by the robot reenactments of the mining conditions. I can appreciate the level of detail they put into the exhibits, but man..those robots are creepy.
  • A bit expensive and I expected the mine to be bigger. But nevertheless worth visiting. Well presented and historical. Very cold even in summer.
  • Very interesting sightseeing place. It's exactly the used goldmine from the Edo era. They have explanations in English. Definitely a recommendation if you're in the area!
  • Love it.. Amazing place to learn how for hundreds years gold was mined
  • worth visiting, but a bit scary cause i went there during rainy day
