ReleaseMarch 27, 2018

Sado was long known for gold and silver deposits and the Tokugawa government developed gold mining here in the Edo period. The output of Sado Kinzan (Sado Gold Mine) was the largest in the world during its heyday in the 17th century. The mining operations finally ended for good in 1989. A section of the mine is now an unusual museum using animatronic wax figures to reproduce scenes of the mining in the old Edo days.
