Sado trip! ⑦ It’s like a Hollywood movie⁉
Fantasy experience with magic glasses “ISLAND MIRRORGE”



Beyond time and space, to a magical world where historical heritage and another world intersect!

A new attraction “ISLAND MIRRORGE” was opened in April of this year at Sado Kinzan(gold mine), a historic site in the Aikawa district of Sado City, Niigata Prefecture.  What kind of experience can you have?

ISLAND MIRRORGE is an attraction where you can experience the new world of gold mines in the fantasy world by walking through the mine with magic glasses called MR glasses.  It is gaining popularity because it gives you a realistic experience that fuses reality with a virtual world.

Without glasses

When you wear glasses

When you enter the mine with these glasses, you will meet a small fairy named AURU with a yellow gold ore spirit.

There are four blue crystals installed in the mine.  The story is about collecting these crystals to give the fairy power and to defeat monsters.

If you look closely at your feet, there is a place where 1(one) is written.  If you press and hold down one on the dedicated smartphone here … Power will be accumulated.  Let’s go through the mine while looking for the four crystals in the mine like this.

The dim atmosphere of the mine and the colorful virtual match, and you can enjoy the full impact of a fantasy world view.

What kind of ending is waiting for you … Please come and experience it.
