Yoo-hoo dogu (clay figurine)

Cultural Heritage/Japan Heritage
A dogu (clay figurine) excavated from the Katsurano site. This dogu is typical of the late-middle Jomon period banzai (hurrah-gesture) dogu found in the Kofu basin area. The historical backdrop of a settlement in decline is reflected in the slender body of the dogu. The dogu was named "Yoo-hoo" by pupils from the local Misaka Higashi Elementary School based on a school-wide vote when the dogu was first excavated.
