秋田内陸縦貫鉄道・阿仁合駅のそばにある煉瓦館。

かつて栄えた阿仁地区の鉱山の歴史やそれに伴い来日した海外の技師の当時の暮らしなどを学ぶことができる施設です。

必見というほどではありませんが時間があるときにでも訪問するのがおすすめです。

          Famed for its sake and samurai, Akita prefecture offers quintessential Japanese culture in a non-touristy setting. Alongside the celebrated rice paddies and historical sites of the region lies dramatic natural scenery in the form of the rugged coastline of the Oga Peninsula and the Dakigaeri Gorge, best visited in autumn, when the leaves begin to change color.
