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.

  • Aikawa on Sado island is where the Sado gold mine in the Edo period. Now is already closed and only traces of gold ore. I feel nostalgic, but quite large in scale, so it was like in the ruins.
