This sightseeing facility consists of a history museum, a gold panning workshop, and a gift shop. Koganeyama Shrine and Kugane-an Tearoom are located next door. A large percentage of the gold that once covered the Great Buddha of Todaiji Temple in Nara was produced here in Wakuya, Miyagi (known as Oda District, Mutsu Province at that time). It is said that the area near Koganeyama Shrine corresponds to the precise location where that gold was mined. At Tenpyo Romankan, you can learn about the history of this gold and experience panning for gold yourself.
