Yoshinogari Historical Park, Yoshinogari-cho

(4.2/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Incredible sense of history. The jar burials are astounding and very well presented. Plaques are presented in Japanese, Korean and English. Set aside at least 2 hours to see everything.
  • Very beautiful historical Ancient moats and palace! Imagine you were travel trough time, and arrive at forth defending an invasion. Feel the war!
  • Every elementary school student must come here. Very informative and interesting. Yayoi's story at its best. Prepare to walk, it took me around 2 hours to visit the site. I will probably come back.
  • Don't go during summer. It is too hot.
  • Big and detailed area. Very clean and good atmosphere. Descriptions on the plates for houses and other things should be more detailed.
