Ikuno Ginzan

Ikuno Ginzan
Development is set by Ikuno silver mine to 807, and real mining has started in 1542. I shone out as the Shogunate direct control mine of each of Oda, Toyotomi and Tokugawa and was often producing a mineral of silver and copper, but I close the mine down in 1973. It's opened to the public as the tourist facility where the design of the those days was reproduced at present. Such as a lode is thought to take a walk through the tunnel where an ore was being dug up in a rock surface, and a doll of an electric device reproduces the operational landscape, since it'll be now, unusual industry can be learned while enjoying oneself.

Domestic of "Fukiya reference library" and 2000 points which reproduced a smelting process by an electric doll until the picture scroll which drew the state of the mine conversantly including a mine solid model in the Edo Period and the paying silver which is presented to the Edo Period and the Shogunate including the "mine reference library" where apparatus kinds in a mine are exhibited are made, from of there is Ikuno mineral house" of the domestic maximum level which exhibits a mineral specimen.
