Ryugenji Mabu is one of mine shafts which is open to the public. It takes about 40 minutes on foot from Omori bus stop or you can reach it in about 20 minutes if you rent a bicycle. It costs 700 yen to rent an electric bicycle. On the way, you can see beautiful scenery
The length of Ryugenji Mabu is about 600m. It’s a little cool there. If you go in summer, make sure you have a jacket. Flat shoes are a good idea too. The roof is low so you should use caution when you walk there. You don’t get a helmet so watch out!
Also, you can see rock strata and the old mine shaft.
