Explore reconstructed Jomon houses in the Tama Hills area

Experience history first hand at the Tokyo Metropolitan Archeological Center, less than 10 minutes' walk from Keio-Tama Center Station. During the Jomon period (c. 8000 B.C.-300 B.C.), the people of the Japanese Archipelago were hunter-gatherers living in small roundhouses.

The Tokyo Metropolitan Archeological Center has informative exhibitions about the lives of the Jomon people who lived in the Tama Hills. You can get a close look at and even hold genuine Jomon pottery in your hands that excavated around Tama New Town. Just beside the Archeologica Center is the expansive Jomon Village, where you can explore faithful reconstructions of these thatched dwellings for yourself.
