You can tell a lot of money has been invested in this museum - its a little way out of town so youll need a car or to take a bus. The jomon stuff is impressive and theres also a small gift shop...

合掌土偶を見ることが目的で八戸を訪れたのに(みろく横丁も目的ですが)、肝心の合掌土偶が長野に外出中でした。受付でそのことを知らされショックを受けましたが、それ以外の展示物も見ごたえがありました。何故か入場料は無料でした。

          Centuries-old stories of samurai at Kakunodate and the remains of millennia-old archaeological sites including the likes of Isedotai invite history buffs to delve into Aomori’s fascinating history. As the most northern prefecture on the Japanese mainland, Aomori enjoys a cooler climate, which makes it a welcome escape from the southern cities for combining castles, art galleries, and summer festivals with the great outdoors.
