    Hi All,

    I will be in Japan for visiting family, and thought I might drag along a small test pan and some other small tools to try and find some Samurai Gold.  Anyone ever gone there and prospected/panned at all?

    Interested in any tips someone can provide - am doing some basic websearch, too, but thought I would see what our members have experienced.

    To the extent I go and do anything there in this regard, I will post with pictures (if I can figure out how to add pics to a post) when I return.

    Thank you!

    Well, spent a couple of hours one day prospecting two small streams in the mountain areas north of Kyoto.  Primarily crevicing, because I did not want to be digging holes and didn't bring a classifier nor any 5 gallon buckets.  Some beautiful scenery (unfortunately my phone fell in the drink and spent the rest of the trip drying out in a bag of rice), but no shinies in the pan.  Did some research and there are some other areas where gold is commonly found, but they involved too much travel for the short time I was there this trip.  I'll be back to Japan sometime soon since my wife's family is from there, so I will find some samurai gold yet.  Stay tuned....

    I was in Southern Japan a number of years before I caught Gold Fever. When I looked for where to find Gold in Japan, I found that its located along some of the reivers in Hokkaido in Northern Japan. Never went there. There's supposed to be lode mines, but I couldn't find anything for placers outside of Hokkaido,
