Mine's amenities include a sports centre, junior high school, and two convenience stores. There is also a small library located somewhat towards the north. Mine has a small temple to a Buddha that is apparently able to cure warts. Mine is technically in the prefecture of Saga, but the city of Kurume in Fukuoka prefecture is closer than the city of Saga and is used by far more people. The city is just across the river called Mamebashi.
In June 2007 there was an industrial accident which resulted in a toxic cloud of hydrofluoric acid killing 129 and wounding 1267 others. The city is currently in discussions concerning a memorial.
