BIBAI

As with many towns in the central region of Hokkaido, much of the recorded history of Bibai (Hokkaido Prefecture) dates back less than 200 years.
The discovery of coal seams in the area led to its rapid development, as the island became a powerhouse in Japan’s industrial boom. The other upshot of the many geological studies made at the time was the discovery of a wealth of artefacts from Japan’s prehistoric past.
