Passing on the Legacy

The Isedotai Site is a precious legacy passed down from the past. Local residents have been working together to enhance its values and have it known to the wider public. Every year in fall, the Jomon Festival is held to reproduce the making of clay figures and the songs and dances of the Jomon Period. The stone Circles attract people here in the modern times as much as they did in the ancient times!
