Yoshinogari Historical Park, Yoshinogari-cho

(220+ reviews on the web)
State Park
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.

  • I'd go in a diversion or when I'm tired. Clearly get rid of too much influence of the pollen. You want to go again.

  • Sunny spring and autumn days is recommended. I think the park bus at first, go very far back on foot. You have time come Magatama, fire experience, sat whistle making, ancient braids and ancient cloth making cheap, you can experience the. Walking tour as well. Bring your lunch, served in a family.

  • 17:00 went over in the closing 16:00 in quite a whirlwind tour around. Knowing that you taught us that if you climb one, but I don't know if that one enters. Description of the staff in charge of clarity and even a child, many felt good. It's more laid back you want to go next.

  • 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.
