Mizuko Kaizuka Park (水子貝塚公園)

4.0

Park / Green Space

This is a history park just a 15-minute walk from the Mizuhodai Station on the Tobutojo Line. This park was created to preserve and replicate the shell mounds, kaizuka, and villages from the Jomon Period discovered at this site. Discovered in 1917, and deemed of “good quality and of great scientific value,” this site was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1969. One can visit the exhibit introducing the lifestyle of the people at that time, and see the excavated earthenware, animal bones and learn about the pit dwellings replicated outdoors.

Oh my goodness, this is a hidden gem. The gentleman showing us around was amazing. He was able to take us back in time so we could experience this amazing park. As a history buff I was amazed!

私は貝塚を始めて見学しました。非常に素晴らしいです。自分の知見が広がった気がします。子供も一緒に行くといいと思います。
Reviewed:2019/11/11 縄文ふれあい広場 水子貝塚公園
水子貝塚は縄文時代前期を代表する貝塚として国の史跡に指定されたそうです。平成6年に「縄文ふれあい広場 水子貝塚公園」として開園。この場所で発見された縄文時代の貝塚・ムラを保存するためにきれいに整備されていました。とても静かな場所でした。

          Eclipsed by neighboring Tokyo, Saitama is often branded as the sleepy suburbs. However, look a little deeper and you'll uncover quaint towns bursting with history and crafts from the kurazukuri Edo-period clay houses of Kawagoe to the ancient tree-enveloped temples of Chichibu.
