Minetopia Besshi 道の駅 マイントピア別子

Enjoy travelling back in time at this interactive amusement park!

Minetopia Besshi is a theme park built out of the industrial remains of the Besshi copper mine on two sites: the Hadeba zone (opened in 1991) and the Tohnaru zone (opened in 1994). As well as a tour of the remains, visitors can experience gold panning, join an experimental tour of the mine to learn about its development over time, followed by a refreshing dip in the natural hot spring “Tenku-no-Yu”. Both children and adults will enjoy a fun day out here. The Tohnaru zone is popularly known as the “Machu Picchu of the Orient”, for its stone walls and brick structures standing high on the mountain top.
