It was like you were sucked back to the Jomon period. Amazing history! There is an English pamphlets from the counter. I went there alone but there was a group that was guided by a historian, I tagged along for more info. Every relics and clay made has a story to tell. Behold! There is a joyous Jomon fire festival at night on the 1st week of October where they sets up several bonfire. Free hot soba soup and tea are served too. Bring a picnic mat for sitting on the grass. Dance and enjoy your night away! So ethnically tribal!
It is one of the leading Jomon pottery museum in Japan in both quality and quantity. The most spectacular earthenware in the middle Jomon period. Among them, the earthenware here is very lively, and the shape which is packed with a lot of ideas and technology can feel the hope of the Jomon people for tomorrow. There were four earthenware exhibition spaces, and this kind of facility was spacious and there were several other visitors even on weekdays.
