Invitation to the world of the Jomon Period

  In addition to the fabulous view of distant Mount Fuji at the foot of the Yatsugatake mountains,
with Mount Kaikomagatake and Houosanzan in the forefront, one also has the Idojiri sites to enjoy.
Those who lived in this region during the Jomon Period gave birth to a sophisticated and fabulous
culture.Since excavation in 1958, research and important archaeological remains have revealed that
the Idojiri sites were a center of what may appropriately be called the "Idojiri Culture".

  The Idojiri Archaeological Museum, adjacent to the Idojiri sites, exhibits archaeological remains
explanations of the world and religion of the Jomon period as perceived from the patterns found
on pottery and clay figurines.

  Imagine life among the Jomon people and try to touch their hearts, and they in turn will undoubtedly
tell you something of themselves as well.
