Karako-Kagi Archaeological Museum
The Karako-Kagi Archaeological Museum primarily exhibits archaeological finds from the Karako-Kagi Archaeological Site, a site which represents a typical moated settlement from Japan's Yayoi period (c. 300BCE-300CE). The museum's over 1000 items on display are derived from actual excavations of the Karako-Kagi Archaeological Site, allowing visitors to learn all about culture and daily life in the Yayoi period reaching back more than 2000 years ago.
Some masterpieces of Yayoi art which have been designated national important cultural propertites are also on display, such as earthenware decorated with towers, jade magatama (crescent shape beads), and limonite containers.
In addition to the exhibiting these archaeological materials, the museum also plays an important role as an educational base for the dissemination of information gained about the Yayoi period through the study of archaeology.
