Former Miike Coal Mine Railroad Site


The Miike Coal Mine Railway was built for the transportation of coal from each pit mouth, materials for mining, and products from factories that constituted a coal-chemistry complex. The railway stretched a combined total length of approximately 150km at its peak, and it also played a role of means of commuting for the miners.
Currently, most of the disused track lines have been removed, however, you still can see structures such as railroad beds and brick-built bridge girders that were in use those days.
