Yoshinogari Historical Park, Yoshinogari-cho

At Yoshinogari Historical Park, you can explore the outstanding archaeological site, believed to be the earliest example of state government in the country. Beneath the ground here, archaeologists have uncovered elevated store houses, dozens of pit dwellings, and over 2,000 tombs, making it the largest and most important site in Japan, and an indispensable location for those who want to learn about the Yayoi period. Across the multiple ditch-and-palisade protected settlements, you can inspect and enter most of the reconstructed buildings, with some containing artifacts salvaged from the site. Near to the central settlement (thought to be where the ruling class would have resided), you'll find a museum filled with more artifacts and packed with information, with detailed English language translations. You can grab a meal at the saga restaurant on site, though it's worthwhile bringing along some water and snacks to sustain you as you explore the large park.

  • Plentiful of open spaces and historical artifacts built to scale. A fun place for the family amidst nature. The park is huge. For a start, take the free shuttle bus to go round the park. Then select places of specific interest to you. Bring along food for a small picnic (there are also provisions for BBQ on site) as the restaurant maybe fully booked up. Enjoy!
  • Good reconstructions of houses, storages, and watch towers built around 2000 years go. You can touch the real Yayoi potteries.
  • Great educational and fun park for the whole family. We were a family of 95 years old to 5 years old and all enjoyed the various parts of the park. We visited on a hot Oct day. There were vendors selling kakigori and other cold drinks. We used the free wheelchair for the grandma.
  • great and huge playground for kids, not too crowded given the space. I think they've got some really great stations like the bouncy hill, kids really go crazy jumping on that thing!!!
  • Perfect place to visit! We see lots of ancient buildings, living tools..., very nice, and the entrance is soooo cheap. I think this place will become national park in the future.
