    Hokkaido Chitoseshi Chuou
    This mass burial site, located near the Chitose-higashi interchange on the Doto Expressway, dates back to the ancient Jomon period. This site is the largest such burial ground from this period in Japan. Comprised of eight burial mounds in total, the mounds are characterized by a donut-shaped earthen embankment surrounding a sunken pit. This style has only been seen in Hokkaido and teaches us about the social systems of the people who lived here regarding burial rites and ancestor worship. Actual artifacts from the site are displayed in the Chitose Archaeological Center to the west in Chitose City.

Hokkaido Areas

Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
