A little known connection between two very historic mines in Japan and Taiwan has lead a delegation from Japan to Taipei to arrange for a cultural exchange that will see treasures from both nations on display, a boon to tourists looking for a bit of history to add to their journey.

A delegation from a Japanese tourism promotion organization visited the Gold Museum in New Taipei Saturday and expressed hope that tourism exchanges and close ties between two historic mines in Japan and Taiwan will be long-lasting.

The delegation, headed by Yozo Nozu, vice chairman of the Shimane Prefecture Tourism Federation, braved heavy rain to tour the museum in Jinguashi, a small town that once prospered thanks to a gold mine.
