Inspirock Rating:
4.6/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web
Anyone with an interest in geology or engineering will be enthralled by the carved, angular faces of the mines at Oya Stone Museum. Fairly modest in size, the museum manages to offer a wealth of information regarding the mining operations done here--from primitive 17th-century toils to the current advanced technological pursuits of the rare Oya stone, found only in this area. From here you'll have the opportunity to venture into the vast mine, colorfully lit and covering an enormous 20,000 sq m (215,278 sq ft). Bring a jacket along with you, as it can get a little chilly inside that gigantic cavern.

  • Better than I thought but did not expect at all. Feel epic thing makes you feel greatness of the Earth. Just like in Japan was not so different. I think that it is worth the try once. It is pretty cold.

  • Not like I've ever been! It is a feeling came to a different world. Grain used in the shooting of films and music videos. Had the good sense out of grocery store goods.
