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.

  • From the entrance, parking places, where entering the lost. Wasting time to clarify our objectives and, if you do not do research. I think gradually South and enter from the East, using Park bus, first toured the main North traffic is recommended. Preferably Magatama making and bronze-making experience is each reasonable amount of time ever. I admitted early am hours with this, because that might be better. In the overall expansive grounds around was hard was the interesting historical Park.

  • Ruins & Park, we visited the lexicon. Yoshinogari-kōen station far East, approximately 800 metres from the East ruins further same may be long distance. Within walking distance is the time to visit with room to spare. Many ruins, are larger. Residence, avoiding the effects of heat and cold pit, farm, crop moisture away floor seems. It was during the week of December was quiet, more staff than customers.

  • 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!
  • 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.
  • I like how we can see the reconstruction of Japan village in Yayoi period including the burial site.
