Arafune Cold Storage

荒船風穴

Last updated: December 21, 2020

It was a cold storage facility that utilizes cold air blowing from underground through gaps between rocks. It also held the largest storage capacity in Japan as multiple rearing cycles of silkworm was enabled. (It was usually carried out only once a year until then.)
This facility, with Tomioka Silk Mill, was registered as the world heritage.
