Visit an important archaeological site and learn about the people who lived here around 6,000 years ago at Sannai-Maruyama Ruins, a Special National Historical Site of Japan. First settled around 3900 BCE and abandoned in 2300 BCE, the area displays many examples of human development, showing the growth of the culture from a hunter-gather community into a more sedentary one. See the underground food stores and pit dwellings that marked the temporary hunter-gatherer settlement, and the long houses and overground food storage areas that show the development into a more sedentary way of life. Discovered in 1992 when builders were surveying the area with a view to building a baseball stadium, the archaeological site includes reconstructions, a museum containing artifacts, and a wealth of explanatory information panels.

国内に現存する最古の遺跡とかで、当時の生活の厳しさが偲ばれます。 少しの疑念は、どの様な道具であの大木を切り出したかな？ どの様な方法で建込したのか？想像は無限に広がります。 今度は半日ぐらい掛けて、視察したいな？ more »It is the oldest remains existing in Japan, and the severity of life at that time is enshrined. A little doubt, what kind of tool did you cut out that big tree? How did you build it? Imagination is infinite. I'd like to spend about half a day this time and visit?
A really nice place to learn about Jomon era. A little too small for my taste but would recommend for history lovers anyway.
