Jomon pots of Andoji site

Cultural Heritage/Japan Heritage
Andoji site is a Middle Jomon Period (c. 3,500-2,500 BC) settlement site. A pot called “suienmon” (flame-and-water pattern), which has four large handles that form a decorative spiral, is one of the masterpieces from the site. The patterns on other pots are also symbolic, with shapes representing wild boars and snakes. Those artifacts were designated Yamanashi Prefecture Important Cultural Properties in 2015.
