The Yoshinogari Ruins extend over three villages in Kanzaki City of Saga Prefecture, and are the largest Yayoi period ruins in Japan. A great number of artifacts from Yayoi period (an Iron Age era from 400 BC to AD 300) have been excavated, from which we are able to learn about everyday life at that time.
