Oya History Museum
This museum was made from around 1,000 cut stones, with a total area of around 20,000 m2. The deepest part of the museum is said to be around 60 meters underground. The exhibition halls document and display both the early mining methods of the mid-Edo era (1603-1867), as well as the hand-dug mining methods used until 1959.
