Overview

Here in Okamura, Isogo Ward of Yokohama City are traces of villages from the Jomon, Yayoi, and Kofun periods. The ruins are in a flat section of around 10,000m2 on a slightly elevated hill almost 55 meters high. It became a nationally designated historical site in 1966, and the following year the Santonodai Archaeology Museum opened to the public along with the ruins. It has even been featured in the booklet for the CD “Sumire” by the music group “Yuzu” from Yokohama.
