The richness of the Jomon Period (16,000 years ago – 3,000 years ago) is demonstrated through its excavated artifacts. Prehistoric cultures, the Jomon Period, had no system of writing. Thus, they would invariably disappear once the last settlement of that society met its demise. The written language, introduced to the Japan Islands by those who migrated from continental Asia, became the means for keeping a record of this complex culture.
Konan Naito (1866-1934), was a prominent 20th Century Sinologist and authority on Oriental Studies. His life goal was to study and understand the “true history of Japan.”. This museum exhibits the results of his research.
This museum displays items from his childhood such as early schoolwork, compositions, a model of his home, during his later life, and samples of his own classical Chinese poetry.
