  • It is very surprised with was from the coal in the Iriomote Island. Learn the ruins, thinking that might be best part of the trip. I used Shirahama port and ship out Taiwan, yes it was loading coal. Iriomote Island coal mining where it was not widely known.

  • 降rinaide in the sight-seeing boats along the estuary of urauchi River Road road walk straight. Say, is pretty much walked, with a 2 km long. Middle Observatory a place, guests can enjoy views of the estuary of urauchi River. End Utara is a coal mine site looks really was strangled winding vines came out on the animated trees and man bone monument and carved stone tower. That seems to have buried bones of many people very much, sacrificed in the coal mine. Was very harsh labor force "pressure mining" was first described.

  • From the back in the river boat landing River walk along the 1 km or so. Swallowed by the jungle slowly comes into view walk walking tracks and a small part of the former coal mine melting. The former coal mine and villages here, so I can't imagine Buri rot away. Comparing photos and images of the actual Board written details and photos of past mines, so still further was interesting. I went with friends and Utara mine visits for the second time in sight when a friend went for the first time, once Dolly strut around Banyan tree, or thought "like" Laputa Castle in the sky". Surely before production of Hayao Miyazaki, Laputa certainly came here (← or not is unknown) and mid-confidence, and then immediately that night, Laputa, were once again still did it (laughs). I think it is worth after exploring the urauchi river cruises, falls from the estuary of urauchi River boat landing near them, for example, extend the legs. Through a little random.
