The core of the Komakino Site is a large-scale stone circle that features a unique stone distribution pattern. It was constructed by the Jomon people roughly 4,000 years ago during the former half of the Late Jomon Period. In addition to shedding light on the spiritual life, social structures, and burial systems of the Jomon people, the site is equally important for understanding the capacity of civil engineering during the period by observing land development and stone transportation techniques and capabilities.
*The road leading up to the Komakino Site is made of gravel. Trees next to the road may have grown to form a tunnel-like structure.
*Operators of large buses: please contact us in advance. Routes and parking may be designated, and regulations related to the type of bus may apply.
