Yamagata Prefectural Museum

  • img

We are exhibiting the origins of Yamagata Prefecture, the flora and fauna that live in Yamagata Prefecture, and fossils.

Of particular note is the “Jomon-no-Megami (Goddess figure of Jomon),” which was certified as a National Treasure in September 2012.

There is also an exhibition of “Yamagata Daikaikyu fossils” discovered by elementary school students in 1978, so children and adults can enjoy learning.

Jomon-no-Megami (Goddess figure of Jomon)

A clay figurine from the middle Jomon period excavated from the Nishinomae site in Funagata Town, Yamagata Prefecture. The feature is that there is no expression of eyes, nose, and mouth. The W-shaped sharp chest, pointed belly, and every part have a sophisticated beauty.

Yamagata Daikaikyu

It was discovered in 1978 at the Mogami river riverbed in Oe Town. I discovered two people in the sixth grade of elementary school at that time. Yamagata Daikaikyu is a mammal that lived in the sea about 9 million years ago.
