Hirasawa Kanga Ruins

One look at the past

Hirasawa Kanga Ruins are ancient Tsukuba City governmental buildings from the 8th to 12th century. Consisting of three warehouses surrounded by a large ditch, they were used as a storage facility for county tax payments which were made in rice and hemp. Some artifacts were found at the site such as tiles and inkstone. We had beautiful blue skies during our trip with many butterflies and a dragonfly dancing in the breeze high above the blanket of green grass.
