Yoshinogari Historical Park
Step into a bygone world of old! Ancient ruins where you can build a fire.
Yoshinogari Historical Park is a specially designated historical site of Japan.
Spanning a total area of 117 hectares, Yoshinogari Historical Park is one of the Japan’s largest historic ruins from the Yayoi Era (5c. B.C. - 3c. A.D.).
The ruins were discovered during an excavation in 1986.
The ruins at Yoshinogari strongly resemble the ancient country of Yamatai, the existence of which has been disputed, that was mentioned in early Chinese chronicles.
There are close to 100 buildings in the park that have been carefully restored based on excavated items and materials.
The park also offers different hands-on programs, such as fire-making experiences (100-yen participation fee) and Magetama making (200-yen participation fee).
As the site covers a wide area, a free in-park bus service runs for visitors.
A historic park that recreates the look and feel of the Yamatai Country.
Hand-on fire-making and magatama experiences available.
Rentable audio guides available in English, Korean, Chinese and Japanese on request.
The inter-garden bus is open to all passengers, but prioritizes elderly and passengers with disabilities.
The on-site restaurant includes dishes that celebrate local ingredients.
