Goshono Jomon Site Park and Museum
The Goshono Jomon Site is one of the heritage assets of the "Jomon Archaeological Sites in Hokkaido and Northern Tohoku" and efforts are currently underway to make it a World Heritage Site.
The Jomon Civilization is rare in that they created settlements based on hunting, gathering, and fishing, so the "Jomon Archaeological Sites in Hokkaido and Northern Tohoku" are key to uncovering the ways of life of ancient Northeast Asian civilizations before the emergence of agriculture.
The Goshono Jomon Site is the archaeological site of a large-scale village settled in the latter part of the Middle Jomon period (5000 to 4200 years ago) where you will see reconstructions of pit dwellings with dirt roofs, stone circles, and other ancient relics in the park of the facility.
In the adjoining museum, you can see exhibits of relics uncovered at the site as well as experience crafting earthenware and accessories.
