Ashio Copper Mine Train
Ashio Copper Mine was a place I was not planning or expecting to go, but how could I refuse a free school trip. Getting to the location was amazing because the mountains and surrounding area were painted with autumn leaves. On this trip I did not know what to expect, but we ended up on this little train that goes into the mine. The staff explained to us what had happened at the mine and why it was shut down. Riding the train we had the chance to see more of the area before entering the dimly lit tunnels. The exhibits in the tunnels depicted the lifestyle and work of the people.
