Nakoku-no-oka Historical Museum

奴国の丘歴史資料館 (奴国の丘歴史公園)

Kasuga City, Fukuoka is presumed to have been the center of Nakoku, an ancient state known for receiving the golden imperial seal from Emperor Guangwu of Han dynasty. There next to the Remains of Suguoka stands the Nakoku-no-oka Historical Park and Museum.
To shed light on the ancient history, exhibited here at the gallery section are various artifacts from the Yayoi period such as copper alloy bowls and iron apparatuses. Other displays reflect that of folklore and agricultural lifestyle from the early Showa period in the region.
On the premises of the Remains of Suguoka designated as a National Historic Site is Nakoku-no-oka Historical Park with an indoor dome disclosing an excavation process of a Yayoi-period coffin in one of the burials. The process was later abandoned prior to completion.
