Japan: Cultural Landscape of the Iwami Ginzan Silver Mine

Today I got two postcards: one from Japan and one from Greece.

The card from Japan shows a view of the Cultural Landscape of the Iwami Ginzan Silver Mine in the Shimane prefecture. The Iwami Ginzan Silver Mine was one of the largest silver mines in Japan and ran from 1526 to 1923. Since 2007 is the Iwami Ginzan Silver Mine with its Cultural Landscape an UNESCO World Heritage Site.


With matching stamp:
Iwami Ginzan Silver Mine (from set of ten) (issued 23-10-2008)


Thank You very much Keiko!
