Celebrating the Golden Wedding Anniversary With a Japanese Theme

As the 50th wedding anniversary is associated with the precious metal gold, it makes sense to seek out meaningful presents that reflect this theme in their design.

Gold Mining in Japan

Although the search for gold has been ongoing in Japan for centuries, the only gold mine in Japan still in operation today is the Hishikari Mine, which produces high-grade gold. Producing almost 7.5 tons of gold every year, it has long been the most productive gold mine in the country thanks to the local volcanic hot springs.

This would make a clever twist on the gold theme for the 50th anniversary year, and would also be a particularly luxurious destination to explore.
