Starting with the exhibition introducing the excavated items from the Uenohara site, the oldest and largest settlement in Japan, slip back in time with the museum's vast deciduous tree and evergreen forests, a reconstructed Jomon village, a theater where you can experience Jomon period, and try your hand at making fire and pottery. From the view from the hill, you can see Sakurajima, Kinko (Kagoshima) Bay, and the Kirishima mountains.

Point

Located in a deciduous forest are five recreated pit dwellings from sites such as the Uenohara site, Nagata site, and the Ufuta site, ranging from the Jomon period to the Kofun period. If you look outside from the homes of the people who lived long ago, you may be able to feel as if you have slipped back in time to a Kagoshima of the distant past.
