The charming town of Omori has been maintained to keep its original and traditional Edo period feeling and structure, so much so that even the vending machines are clad in the same aged timber as the buildings! The walk up to the mine shaft was a pleasurable experience; the path often winds through the forest and there are so many ruins and temples (you may also see monkeys) hidden along the way that you could spend at least half a day exploring the area. There is a short portion of the mine shaft accessible to the public that will take about 15-20 to walk through and where you can feel and experience what conditions were like for the miners.
