Artifacts of Kabutsuppara site

Cultural Heritage/Japan Heritage
The Middle Jomon Period (c. 3,500-2,500 BC) pottery with large handle shaped like a wild boar is one of the most distinguishable artifacts of Kabutsuppara site. An amber bead is also a fabulous discovery from this site. The amber producing areas are very limited in the Japanese archipelago, and are not found in Yamanashi Prefecture. According to geoscience analysis, the provenance of the amber bead at Kabutsuppara site could be identified as from the Tohoku region, a location over 200 km from its discovery.
