A site featuring historical reconstructions where you can learn about life during Japan's Yayoi period (300 BC to 300 AD)
The Toro Ruins was the site of a rice-farming village from about two millennia ago, and is a rare archaeological find in Japan. The outdoor area features life-size dwellings restored based on the found artifacts, which the neighboring Toro Museum exhibits as-is. This is a great place to learn about what life was like in Japan 2000 years ago.
The museum exhibits are very unique and enjoyable even if you have no knowledge of archeology. There are restored dwellings, a raised storehouse and ceremonial house, as well as restored rice paddies where you can simulate rice planting and threshing like they did back then. Take a trip back in time to ancient Japan!
