Saitobaru Archeological Museum of Miyazaki Prefecture宮崎県立西都原考古博物館

4.0

Museum / Science Museum

A museum located in the Saitobaru Tomb Area, a collection of some of Japan’s oldest tombs. Now a designated Special Historic Landmark Park, the area is dotted with over 300 tombs. The museum displays artefacts from the tombs and visitors can learn about the formation of the geography of southern Kyushu and the mysteries of the tombs from a diverse array of materials. The Ancient Life Interactive Center’s hands on exhibits, where visitors can ake a hands-on class about making haniwa and dogu clay figures, is particularly popular. From the third-floor restaurant, you can enjoy a cup of tea while gazing out over the Saitobaru Tomb Area, famed for its seasonal blossoms, particularly its cherries in spring.

Review of Saitobaru Archaeological Museum

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/03/28 Learn everything about the tombs here
If you are interested in history or archeology or you just want to know more about the tombs here, this is the place you have to go. The museum is equipped with tablets which show all the description...
Reviewed:2014/11/04 Mind the days it closes
We arrived on Tuesday and it was closed. Monday is normal closing day but we think the rule of closing the day after a public holiday caused it to close. So some care is required.
Reviewed:2020/02/26 西都市に来たなら是非立ち寄り願います。
県立の立派な博物館です。古墳群は宮内庁の管轄でありますが、宮崎県の相当な力の入れようが分かる博物館です。この内容で無料・・とは、、。歴史を紐解いてください。ただ、順路が曖昧ですのでご注意ください。

          An unmissable highlight of Kyushu, Miyazaki prefecture satisfies nature lovers with its dramatic gorges cut out of rugged cliffs, leading into waterfalls and beaches of green-blue water popular among surfers. Takachiho Gorge in the north of the prefecture tells a tale of centuries-old Japanese mythology in a fantastic setting, allowing visitors to explore the waters by boat before heading up to the cave at the Awano Iwato Shrine, where the sun goddess was said to have hidden, plunging the world into darkness.
