Back to the Yayoi period in ancient Japan!
Toro Ruins is a special historic site that tells of the farming culture of the Iron Age Yayoi period (B.C. 300 to A.D. 300). Here, you can see reconstructed residences, stilt warehouses, and rice fields. Adjacent to the ruin site is the Shizuoka City Toro Museum. The museum exhibits excavated archaeological relics along with a life-sized diorama of Toro village which showcases the lifestyles of the Yayoi people who lived there. You can explore the "village" and get first-hand experience living in the Yayoi period. Try your hands at primitive fire making—it'll be fun!
