The Sannai-Maruyama Site is a historically important archeological site and museum located in Aomori Prefecture. The ruins belonged to a large Jomon-period settlement and were originally rediscovered in 1992. The people of the Jomon age were known for their sedentary lifestyles and this settlement has provided artifacts as well as a look into the lives of the people of the past.
Excavation of the site unearthed storage pits and above-ground storage further cementing the people as belonging to the region. The site has been designated a Special National Historical Site of Japan. Visitors may make their way to the site and see the reconstructions of Jomon-style architecture and artifacts native to the site.
The Sanmaru Museum exhibits over 1700 artifacts and about 500 Important Cultural Properties that were all excavated from the Sannai-Maruyama site. Inside the museum, guests will be able to watch a video on the lifestyle of the Jomon people (with English audio devices available upon request). Alongside the artifacts from the Sannai-Maruyama site are figures that best represent how scientists believe the tools were used.
