Osaka Prefectural Museum of Yayoi Culture collects, stores and exhibits materials and information about general aspects of Yayoi culture. Adjacent to the National Historic Park of Ikegami-Sone Ruins, one of Japan's largest ruins of the Yayoi period, the museum gives a permanent exhibition of "the World of Ikegami-Sone," which displays various exhibits relating to the Ikegami-Sone Ruins, including an original column of a large building of the Yayoi period that is said to have been a shrine, and a replica of a large ancient well with a well-head hollowed out of a giant camphor tree, enabling visitors to easily understand what the central village of the Izumi area in ancient times, Ikegami-Sone, was like. In the outdoor experience zone, visitors are provided with opportunities to participate in excavation and restoration of pit dwelling. Special exhibitions are also held in every season. This is Japan's one-of-a-kind museum for fostering better understanding of not only local ruins, but also general aspects of Yayoi culture.
