Lake in Abandoned Quarry in Kitagishima

Japan Heritage
At abandoned quarry sites on Kitagishima, rainwater filled the quarry pits to make lake-like scenes called “worksite lakes.” The lake in the Chinohama district is especially beautiful, like a landscape painting. This is also a heritage site that shows the history of the quarrying industry. An old tool shed is still standing.
