Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Kyushu / Saga Prefecture / Kanzaki-gun / Yoshinogari-cho / Yoshinogari Historical Park
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.

Yoshinogari Historical Park Reviews
この場所自体は何度も来ていますが、今回は日本百名城の一つとして訪問しました。 広大な敷地内に復元された弥生時代の建物が並んでいのるは壮観です。 それぞれも精巧に復元されていて当時の生活を何となく想像できます。 私が訪問した日は、晴天だったので櫓から見える眺望が非常に綺麗でした。 more »This place itself has come many times, but this time I visited it as one of the 100 most famous castles in Japan. It is spectacular to see the Yayoi-era buildings lined up on the vast grounds. Each of them has been elaborately restored, so you can imagine the life of those days somehow. On the day I visited, the view from the pass was very beautiful because it was fine weather.
Belle reconstitution d'un village du paléolithique. On peut en découvrir l'intérieur, les enfants se régaleront. Un bus est disponible pour aller d'un point à un autre du parc. Des activités pourries ... more »Beautiful reconstruction of a Paleolithic village. You can discover the inside, the children will enjoy it. A bus is available to get from one point to another in the park. Large and rotten activities are available. A small regret: the two indoor exhibitions are exclusively in Japanese, which makes you lose a lot of fun
A really large site, takes at least 3 hours to visit. Well preserved and full of information. A place worth visiting if you are interested in history. Within walking distance from JR station.
If you are traveling by car, follow the signs for the East entrance once you get into town. That is the easiest access point. The park is essentially a reconstruction of a nation-state that existed during the Yayoi period. The park is actually pretty big and you can enter most of the reconstructed buildings. There are also activity centers and museums throughout the park.
