  Jomon era museum ‘KARKO’

Relics unearthed from ruins around the city and prefecture, including Kamegaoka, are on display here. There are also restored pit dwellings with Jomon-inspired robots recreating scenes of daily life from the period, and talking to visitors in ancient tongues. The Shakoki (Lit: "Light blocking device") clay figure found at the Kamegaoka ruins in 1887 was named so because the exaggerated eyes resemble eyewear used by ancient northern civilizations as a kind of sunglasses. The figure was designated an Important Cultural Property in 1928, and is now kept at the Tokyo National Museum in Ueno. This museum displays a replica made from molds taken from the original.
