1月末に行きました。土肥温泉郷ではちょうど桜祭りをやっており、土肥温泉に泊まった領収書を見せると、@860の入園料が半額になるとのことでしたので行きました。HP上にも割引券が付いています。金山の中はどうやって金を採掘していたか人形再現しており、又金山の廻りにどんな町があり、どんな人がいて、どんな金が取れたのかなど、歴史的な勉強にも見ごたえがあります。お土産屋さんも充実しており、予想外に良かったです。別料金にて@720で砂金採り体験もしました。結構難しいのですが、私含め大人が必死になってさらっていましたw。ちょうど昼時でしたので、2Fにあるお蕎麦屋さん?のようなレストランに寄りましたが、これまた揚げたての天ぷらが出てきた入りと、想像の範囲外でした。とても満足です。 The entrance fee is 860 yen. There is a discount ticket on HP. KAWAZU cherry blossoms were in bloom in the area on January. We can study history. we can find out how they were mining gold, what kind of town there are around,...More

My wife and I visited here on a recent trip to Izu Peninsula. Quite good fun. I did not know Japan had a gold mining industry. We got to pan for gold as well. Good place for adults and kids alike

The highlight is the world's largest (most heavy) gold block and the gold panning experience. Although I got only 2 tiny pieces of gold myself before I got really tired;p And the bonus: it was early February when I went to visit Toi Kinzan, but...More

This gold mine (now closed) used to be No. 2 gold mine in Japan after Sado. Do not miss (actually to touch) the world's largest gold bullion. This place was quite enjoyable.

Gold was what attracted me to visit! There is a beautiful garden where you can take photos but it was raining when I visited, so I went straight indoors. The tunnel museum gives a good illustration of history of the mine and how life was...More

Delightful old display about gold mining in Japan. Worth while visit just to see the figures and mechanics of display. Some interesting info and a good long walk underground. Easy access.

土肥金山が、佐渡金山に次ぐ日本第2位の金山で、かつてはとても賑わっていたことを、この施設に入って初めて知りました。生憎の雨で観光できなかったため、この施設に立ち寄ったのですが、雨宿りにはちょうど良いと感じました。 I knew a fact that a gold mine in Sado was the biggest one in Japan and one in Toi was the second for the first time. This area used to be bustling thanks to this gold mine. The reason why I entered into...More
