Hosokura Mine Park at the foot of the Mt. Kurikoma in Kurihara City, Miyagi Prefecture, is highly recommended to experience cool air during the hot summer. As air temperature in the mine gallery is around 16 degrees (61 F) all year round, you can enjoy the spot regardless of seasons.
Hosokura Mine with 1,100 years’ history closed in 1987 and reopened as a tourist spot with gallery. The gallery shows the mine’s history by reproducing actual working process together and offering experience of mysterious space history.
