Sanmaru Museum

The museum exhibits approximately 1,700 artifacts including approximately 500 important cultural properties excavated from the Sannai-Maruyama site. At the Jomon no Kokoro (Basics of the Jomon Period) section on your left after going through the entrance tunnel, you can see large flat clay figures, large jade beads (used not only as accessories but also in shamanic rituals), and large chestnut pillars.
On your left is the themed exhibition Jomon-jin no Kurashi wo Himotoku (Life in the Jomon Period). Dolls are used to reproduce what we think Jomon daily life was like based on excavated objects.
