Satsuma Kinzangura/Japan

This place is the former site of Kushikino Mine. This mine has a history of over 300 years and produced more than 50 tons of gold until the shutdown in 1994. Now the project of precious metal recycling is done.
Because the temperature of the tunnel is constant throughout the year,” Satsuma Kinzangura” uses some galleries to store and cultivate Shochu. You can ride the truck and visit the reservoir of Shochu, but you can’t experience gold panning.

Satsuma Shochu” is one of the origin-designated brands based on the WHO like "Bordeaux wine" and "Scotch whiskey".

Address: Noshita Ichikikushikino-shi Kagoshima-ken
