  • This museum is located in Tagawa City Coal Memorial Park, less than a 10-minute walk from Tagawa Ida Station. Opened in 1983. Admission is 400 yen. A variety of materials related to the coal industry are on display, and there are large machines for coal mining and restored coal mine houses on display outdoors. It is a substantial exhibition content, and it is very impressive because there is a model and a diorama, etc. On the second floor, there is an exhibition room of the Yamamoto Sakubei Collection, which was registered as the first UNESCO World Memory Heritage site in Japan, where you can see documentaries depicting the work and life of the coal mine.

  • I made my first visit to the Tagawa City Coal History Museum on my way to Kokura by renting a car from Kitakyushu Airport. Large parking is free and museum buildings are available for a fee, but there are plenty of coal mine heritage exhibits in places like free parks around the museum, so you can enjoy it completely free of charge.
