Tagawa City Coal Commemorative Park


The Coal Commemorative Park was built to convey to future generations the importance coal played in the development of Tagawa City. Visitors here can see a monument commorating the folk dance Dankosetsu which was performed here first. Located behind Tagawa-Ita station is the site of the former coal pit as well as 2 smokestacks which are registered as Tangible Cultural Properties of Japan. Here visitors can enter the Coal Museum and view exhibits on coal mining, and historical documents. There is also a reproduction of a house that was once used by miners from the early Showa period (1926-1989) as well as a transport carriage. The 2 remaining smokestacks at the Ita coal pit are often referred to as the symbol of Tagawa City. In 2002, the exhibit was changed.

The total area of the site is 4.8 hectares (516,667 square feet)
