3 Reasons to Visit Yoshinogari Japan in 2017

Yoshinogari is a massive 73.7 hectare-wide national park and an important archaeological site in Saga Prefecture. It showcases the Yayoi Period (300 BC to 300 AD) with its unearthed and reconstructed moat-surrounded villages containing watch towers, shrines, high-floored storehouses, ceremonial halls and other dwellings. It is believed to be the long disputed ancient country of Yamatai mentioned in early Chinese chronicles “Gishi Wajinden”due to the location and layout of the village, making it a national site of special historic importance.

  1. Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?

    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a
    tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different
    then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely
    unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
