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.

  • 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.
  • Big and detailed area. Very clean and good atmosphere. Descriptions on the plates for houses and other things should be more detailed.
  • Really good place to discover a part of the Japanese history.
  • Personally I'm more so into going to a park to enjoy the atmosphere rather than being educated, because that's what you'll get out of going to Yoshinogari Park.
  • Around a half a day. But the foot is not. Judging from the size of the moat and fence must have been intense tribal feud had not guessed to be done.
