It was an amazing experience for me to walk around Karosi Shell mound. I stopped by at one of the recreated Jomon houses, and tasted Ibokisago (shell fish) soup cooked there using a Jomon pot. I also experienced the Jomon way of fire-lighting helped by a member of Kasori volunteer guide group. We used a special wooden tool prepared by the group. Another interesting experience was creating a handmade accessory with Ibokisago and other shells. I think these events might attract not only small kids but also adults. For those who love history/archeology, I recommend Kasori Shellmounds Site Museum located in the center of the site. It’s a small but informative museum about Jomon pots, middens, and the life of Jomon people. I learned they had treated dogs completely different from other animals, that’s why Kasoriinu, the Kasori’s mascot character, is a dog. Another building keeps cutaway middens, where I felt like time-travelling back to o 5000 years ago. All these special experiences were free of charge. Fire-lighting and accessory making are available on 2nd and 4th Sunday. Igokisago soup and other types of Jomon food (acorn cookies, etc.) are offered only on special occasions.
