We report about Yamagano Gold Mine in Kagoshima Prefecture one of the top three productions in Japan. It began to operate in 1640 and continued active operation for more than 300 years. Nowadays, in order to distribute knowledge of its history and historic sites widely, we have been organized a walking tour visiting the historic sites. Members are finding their lives worth by welcoming visitors and cultivating the site together with them.

Key words: History of Yamagano Gold Mine, One of Top Three Gold Productions in Japan, Walking Tour for revisiting to the site
