Worked fumarolic sulphur from Me-Akan volcano, starting in 1951, although previous workings had exploited this deposit intermittently since prospecting started in 1802. In the mid-1950s it was the second largest sulphur mine in Japan, producing about 2,000 tons per month, some of which was exported to Australia and India.
