Yo! Grab your cameras, it's more haikyo!
The entrance to the mine was totally locked, and a little slickness was in need to get in. I'll let you figure your own way if you ever make it out here.
The hillside mine / processing building was crazy.
All kinds of giant machinery. What kind of poisonous chemicals are we breathing in? Who cares!
We actually thought this was a gold mine, but a local we met at the onsen down the road said that it was used for mining and processing some kind of caustic minerals.
So, ummmm, don't drink any of the standing water.
And for god's sake, don't flip the place on.
Located somewhere in the middle of Izu.
