Yoshinogari Historical Park, Yoshinogari-cho
(4.2/5 based on 200+ 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.

  • I went walking from JR tosu station. There is a lot of information that I m not be anxious. The building in front of maybe that yoshinogari, would emerge. Inside the Park is very large. No on is like buses, but did not at all time. I walked towards North traffic first. After visiting the Northern traffic staff visiting the North tomb's glasses, and walked further. Smell of the moment and sat and tried to get into the building hanging burst came. Pretty walk from the entrance, but also come. On the way back we walked to the Kanzaki station.
