An Oral History of Miners Salary, Consumption and Risks in High Growth Miike and Chikuhô Coal Fields

Abstract : When examing how the process of modernization impacted the life of miners, one method available to the historian is oral history. There are no miners left today who worked in the mines before the Second World War. But we can still interview former miners who started working in the immediate postwar period. So what we have tried to identify with our interviews and this article is a moment in the social history of mining, that of the 1950s and 1960s. For this purpose, during autumn and winter 2017-2018 for again in autumn 2018, we conducted interviews in Omuta with three miners (Mr.Hori, Mr.Isoda, Mr.Iwai) from the now de ne Mitsui Miike mine and in Tagawa with two miners (Mr.Kawai, Mr.Hata) formerly employed at the Mitsubishi Shinyû and the Mitsui Tagawa mines, respectively.
