These overlapping remains indicate a long history, spanning from the paleolithic age through the Jomon, Epi-Jomon, and Satsumon cultures. Located at 20-meter elevated high point overlooking the Kushiro Shitsugen Wetlands, there are over 300 pits remaining. As you would expect, evidence of the previous inhabitants' lifestyles has been unearthed, such as hearth remains, shell mounds, and cultivated plant seeds, allowing a glimpse into the past.
