Iwaki City was once home to the Joban coal mines, which boasted the largest production of coal in Japan. However, the mines were closed in the mid-Showa period (1926–1989), and the buildings from that time have been left in ruins. In this historical tour, you will explore the normally off-limits remains of the coal mines guided by a former mine worker, who will share with you the dreams of the coal-mining era.
