Itoigawa City, Niigata Prefecture

Find your own jade here at the “Jade Coast”

Alongside the coastline of the Itoigawa City, there are lots of mineral rocks floating by. It is also called "Jade Coast". A "Hirokko" sampling kit is sold at places like Geopark Tourist Information Center. You can then bring the sone to the Fossa Magna Museum to check if it is a real jade or not. It's also a good idea to spend your summer here.
