Other Historic Site/Building

A gold mine which once boasted the second highest output in the nation from the Edo to the Showa periods located in the Toi area of Izu City, Shizuoka Prefecture. The mine was turned into a tourism facility in 1972 after its closure, and today it is open to the general public. The mine contains a 350 meter stretch of tunnel which recreates a mining scene from the Edo period. Visitors can also view a giant, 250 kilogram chunk of gold which is registered in the Guinness Book of World Records, try panning for gold, enjoy a meal at the mine’s restaurant, or go shopping in the souvenir shop. The most popular souvenir sold in the shop is the Kinpaku Castella, castella sponge cake sprinkled with gold leaf.

土肥金山の施設二階にあるお食事処です。
普通に食事のできる普通に満足のレストランです!
席数が多いので団体さんがメインかな?
メニューに対しての細かい対応は苦手のようです、

          With the giant Pacific Ocean to the south and the great Mount Fuji to the north, Shizuoka prefecture is blessed with some of the best views the country has to offer. The white sand beaches of the Izu Peninsula are a rare find on mainland Japan, neighbored by beautiful cliffs, tumbling hills, and natural hot springs. As Japan’s largest producer of green tea, the age-old tradition of tea drinking is ubiquitous in Shizuoka, from the miles of tea fields to the old tea houses hosting traditional tea ceremonies.
