Iwami Ginzan (silver mine) enjoyed a long history before it closed in 1923.
Silver was said to have been discovered there in 1526.
In 1533, innovative refining techniques were introduced from South Korea, and with them the production of silver dramatically increased.
The vestige of the prosperity of Iwami Ginzan is reflected in the view of Omori-machi. About one kilometer from the magistrate’s office, there still remain merchants’ houses, inns, samurai residences and other structures in the area, once bustled as the center of the silver mine administration. This sight alone is enough to give you an idea how well Iwami Ginzan prospered.
