The Sorachi River Outcropping Charcoal is a cultural asset of the Japanese Heritage Site ” coal mines, steel mills, shipping ports “.
Until last year, the approach to the site was by canoe or other means from the river, as the coal seam is located on a cliff.
This year, an observation deck was completed, and the Sorachi River Outcropping Coal Seam can now be seen on the left bank downstream of the Sorachi River, which meanders widely.
