Minetopia Besshi (マイントピア別子)

3.5

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath

This theme park located in Tatsukawa-cho, Niihama City was built around the Besshi copper mine, which was once counted amongst Japan’s Three Biggest Copper Mines. It offers hands-on experiences such as gold panning and also features a hot spring bathhouse and other facilities. Visitors can enjoy learning about the history of copper mining from a number of industrial heritages that have been registered as cultural assets are preserved in the park. The park also has a restaurant, a barbecuing facility, and even a shop specializing in nagashi-somen (thin wheat noodles served in flowing cold water).

          Stretched across the northwest corner of Shikoku island, Ehime is a nature-rich prefecture boasting beautiful coastlines and a rural center where mountains play host to 26 of the Buddhist temples that make up the Shikoku Pilgrimage. Matsuyama is home to an original post-feudal castle as well as Dogo Onsen, one of the country's oldest natural hot springs. The northern city of Imabari marks the entrance to the Shimano Kaido, a road that crosses six spectacular bridges and several islands, forming a route between Shikoku and mainland Honshu.
