A historical park to feel the origins of Japanese culture

The expansive 117-hectare grounds of Yoshinogari Historical Park is a park facility where you can experience the Yayoi Era (300BC-300AD), which saw the birth of rice cultivating culture in Japan, via the Yoshinogari Ruins, restored buildings from the era and excavation exhibits. There are 4 areas which make up the park: the Entrance Zone which features the Historical Park Center with video facilities and a restaurant; the Moat Encircled Village Zone consisting of the Kitanaikaku which governed over the Minaminaikaku, the residential area for those high in the social hierarchy; the Ancient Field Zone, a large 20-hectare area where you can enjoy various forms of recreation; and the Ancient Forest Zone, where you can learn and experience various things within the recreated Yayoi Era woods.

An interactive facility to have fun and learn

At the Yoshinogari Ruins, people of all ages can learn in detail about ancient Japan as known through the academically valuable ruins where remnants of buildings and relics from throughout the 600 years of the Yayoi Era have been discovered. The attraction is not just being able to see the houses and buildings of the era along with the restored village, but also being able to experience the lifestyles of those ancient people via a variety of daily workshops. You can have fun learning how to make fire, earthen flutes, cloth, mirrors and other things. Also the large grounds are popular with families for big athletic playground equipment, trampolines, a grass field and other facilities so that they can move around to their hearts’ content. A gift shop and a restaurant whose menu incorporates local vegetables and wild rice are available so that you can spend an entire day at the park.
