The Gold Mine

This is probably the only abandoned gold mine in Japan but also a very simple haikyo : rails covered with mud, an abandoned mine cart and a tunnel that collapsed. It is nonetheless a very unique spot which I am glad I stepped into.

If you want to visit closed gold mines as a tourist, there are two famous ones : the Sado Gold Mine and the Toi Gold Mine.
