What to Expect

1.You can enjoy cycling between Yoshinogari railway station and Yoshinogari Historical Park. If you prefer a fifteen minute's walk, then let's walk!!

2.The Yoshinogari Historical Park is an outstanding archaeological site in Saga Prefecture. The huge park covers a large settlement from the Yayoi Period (400 BC to 300 AD).This archaeological site is of great importance in Japanese and world prehistory because the massive size and important nature of the settlement and the artifacts are found there. Yoshinogari consists of a settlement, a cemetery, and variously shaped territories. Bronze mirrors from China, Japanese-style bronze mirrors, bronze daggers, coins, bells, and halberds, iron tools, wooden tools, prehistoric human hair, and many other precious artifacts have been dug out from Yoshinogari features. The total area of this site is approximately 40 hectares. Many agencies have been exploring this site since 1986. Due to the superior features, artifacts, and significance in Japanese prehistory, the site was designated as a "Special National Historic Site" in 1991, and a National Park was created there in 1992. Ancient structures are being reconstructed on the site and the park is a major tourist attraction.
You can apply for following interactive workshops there.
MAGATAMA : You can make ancient stone pendant. The material cost is JPY 200~250. Last class is 1 hour and 30 min. prior to the Park's closing
FI-OKOHI : You can make fire like the way ancient human did. The cost is JPY 100.Last class is 1 hour prior to the Park's closing
TUTI-BUE : You can make Earthen Flute. The cost is JPY 100. Last class is 1 hour and 30 min prior to the Park's closing

3.You can drop in at the site of Metabaru Airport's gate. It was one of the bases of KAMIKAZE squad in WW2. A lot of young pilots departed from the airport, and most of them never returned. The story was turned into a movie in 1993. The title of the movie is "Summer of moonlight(月光の夏)".

4. There are many good restaurants in and around the park. At your request, I can select the most adequate restaurant.
