The Jomon Village historic garden, which lies adjacent to the Tokyo Metropolitan Archaeological Center, is based on the Tama Newtown No.57 ruins (a Jomon Period community), and recreates the scenic views of the Tama Hills during the Jomon Period.
The garden reproduces the vegetation of the Jomon Period with 50 varieties of trees including Japanese horse chestnut, walnut, and chestnut, as well as royal fern, bracken, and other plant life.
The Jomon Village historic garden also features recreations of three residences. Hearth fires are lit inside the residences (one residence per day) according to the schedule below. Gather around the hearth and soak in the Jomon people.
