Very interesting objects in here showcasing the history of the mine. It is cold inside in winter, but still worth checking out

We just found an old SL car on the way to Aspite Line, Hachimantai, Japan.
It was just next to the Matsuo Mine Museum.

          A northern Tohoku prefecture promising peace and quiet, Iwate is sparsely populated, replacing people with snow-capped mountains, history-rich sites, and fields of crops that are to thank for the region's delicious local cuisine. Meander along the three-city Golden Route, where you'll visit the grand Buddhist temples of Hiraizumi and the Tono folk villages before tasting the three famed noodle dishes of Morioka.
