Toi Gold Mine ( Wikipedia)

This is a gate of Gold mine.

My wife and her friends

He is a guard during Edo period.

Please check the website in English about Toi Gold Mine in Wikipedia.

There is a small pond.

Golden Carps!!

From here we can get into the mine!

First of all we have to walk in the long tunnel.

There are some models on the wall.

This is the first monument. This torii has gold leaf on it.

Explanation of this monument is below.

Bucket chain scooping of mine water


Explanation is below.

Hot spring in mine

Hot spring
It was said that the hot spring of "Toi" was first welled up from the gold mine in those days.
The hot spring was the most pleasant place for miners to soothe their fatigue after a hard working day.

The people worked outside like this.

Let's go to the gold mine museum next.

Long time ago there used to be a lot of gold mines in Izu peninsula.
There was a gold mine in the mountain on the other side of Pension Sakuraya.

During Edo period they worked to get gold from the ore like this.

12.5kg Gold  It's very heavy

Look at that!

We can touch it through the hole.

There are many kinds of ore from all of the world.

Golden Maneki-neko  Golden lucky cat

What does it mean "Maneki neko"?

They carried the gold like this long time ago.

Gold leaf 250g!!!

Let's go for gold panning next!!

30 minutes for gold panning

It was a little difficult to pan for the 1st time.

I could get 3 gold leaves!! Next time I will be able to get more than 20!

Here is a facebook album of all pictures on this web page.
