Travel Guide - Sannai-Maruyama Site / Komakino Site


Sannai Maruyama Site is one of the largest Jomon ruins excavated in 1992.
The recent discovery of the Sannai Maruyama Site revolutionized existing theories on Jomon culture.
There are restored residences and storehouses of Jomon Period (5,500 - 4,500 years ago) in the large premises.
The exhibition center, "Jomon Jiyukan" offers various hands-on experiences, including making Jomon pochettes and mini clay figures.
