Said to be discovered in 1896 by a local street seafood vendor, Taio Gold Mine near the border of Kumamoto Prefecture once yielded the highest amount of gold in entire Asia at the height of its production.
Following the closure, this Underground Museum was placed in 1972 using the old gallery. The 800m stretch of passage is open to the general public and features gold panning trial/workshop as well.
Michi-No-Eki Taio Kinzan is also situated next to the Museum - making it a convenient location for a quick visit.
