Shiraishi is a haikyo that definitely worth more than 1 visits. Especially if you read carefully through its history and observe closely its structure and design. But even by just looking at the appearance of it, you will not be disappointed; the mine from far away looks quite impressive being completely covered by vegetation, just like the places appear in your nightmare. But if you step inside, you will be taken into a heavenly dream where everything is purely white. If you are interested in more than just the appearance, check with the name “Shiraishi Industry Kuwana Factory” to get a better understanding of this haikyo.
Somewhere in the middle of Mie Prefecture. It is not very hard to find as it is a well known mine.
