Toi Kinzan was Izu’s largest gold mine, which had a working mine for roughly 400 years.
The gold mine tunnels extend more than 100 kilometers in total length.
You can explore the part of the gold mine tunnels and learn how gold was excavated here during the Edo Period (1603 -1868).
The local heritage museum "Kogane-kan" offers historical documents on the gold mine and displays the world’s largest gold nugget (250kg, worth about 1.25 billion yen) certified by Guiness World Records.
Throughout the year, you can enjoy panning for gold in "Sakin-kan" hall.
Try your luck collecting gold particles from natural black sand using hot spring water.
