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
敷地面積が広く、園内ではバスも走っています。弥生時代の住居や建物を再現した施設がいたるところに点在しています。 more »The area of the site is large, and the bus runs in the garden, too. There are many facilities everywhere that recreate the houses and buildings of the Yayoi period.
じっくり見るには約１日かかります。屋外が多いので天気の良い日の方が見学しやすいと思います。集落はレプリカですが当時の状態が再現されています。 more »It takes about a day to take a closer look. I think that it is easier to see the day when the weather is good because there are a lot of outdoors. The village is a replica, but the state of the time has been reproduced.
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.
