Yanahara Mine Museum (柵原鉱山資料館)

4.0

Reference/Local/Exhibition/Literature Museum

This museum is inside the Yanahara Fureai Mine Park, about a 30-minute drive from Mimasaka Interchange off the Chugoku Expressway. This facility offers a chance to learn about the history and culture that flourished around Asia's premier iron sulfide mine. Up until its closing in 1991, Yanahara mine was a highly productive mine, and at its height produced 900,000 tons of iron sulfide. The mine offers life-size replicas of the mine sets from its heyday, displays cart tracks used to haul ore, and more impressive sights. There are also tours allowing you to see agricultural products grown in the Yanahara mine shafts.

Review of Yanahara Mine Museum

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/05/19 一見変な組み合わせだけど、おもしろい
子供が、柵原ふれあい公園の片上鉄道跡を見たいと言うのでそこを訪問したついでに、同じ公園内にあるこの資料館も見学しました。
資料館は、旧柵原町の昭和中期のくらしと、ここの旧鉱山の概要、使われていた鉱山技術などの展示がメインでした。展示は妙な組み合わせであるものの、鉱山の展示はなかなか見る機会がなく、面白かったです。
Reviewed:2019/03/30 鉱山の歴史を伝える。昭和レトロの町並みも再現。
国道374号線を北上しているとき、偶然に案内板が目に入り、左折して資料館を訪問しました。柵原ふれあい公園内にある施設で、かつて黄銅鉱などの採掘で栄えた鉱山の資料等が展示されています。館内には昭和レトロな町並みも再現されています。地下1階には坑道内での採掘のようすが再現されています。入館料は510円(65歳以上は410円)ですが、見学する価値は十分にあると思います。

          Overshadowed by Hiroshima to the west and the Kansai region to the east, Okayama is an easy spot to miss but a nature-rich gem where the Seto Inland Sea laps at its toes and peach and grape farms complete its interior. One of Japan's Three Great Gardens, Koraku-en in Okayama city is well worth a visit before progressing to Kurashiki, where preserved wooden Edo buildings line the picturesque canal.
