#1 of 11 in Historic Sites in Aomori
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.
