The Aikawa mine, the center of Sado Gold Mine, started mining in the 1600s.
It seems that Sado gold mine at that time was one of the largest gold mine in the world.
It seems that it was known in the 11th century that money can be collected on Sado Island.
This is a facility that reused the closed Sado Gold Mine as a museum.
