Fodor's Review

Want to know what it was like to live in this area 5,500 years ago? This, one of the country's largest archaeological sites, features a reconstruction of a Jomon settlement that lasted for roughly 1,500 years, from 3500 BC to 2000 BC. After an extensive excavation, it was opened to the public and has attracted crowds of children on school outings, people wanting to trace their roots, and, of course, archaeology buffs. Its interactive approach encourages visitors to try crafts making and cuisine.
