"Fantasy for the Jomon Era"

KYOTO UNIVERSITY OF ART AND DESIGN, GEIJUTSU-KAN


By TOMOHIRO OSAKI
Staff writer

Information about the life of Japanese people during the Jomon Period (Japan's neolithic era) is limited, but the study of ancient ruins and archeaological finds have helped us develop a picture of their lifestyle. For example, it is assumed that they hunted boars in the winter and dived into the ocean for shellfish in the summer.

This exhibition showcases 284 artifacts that help us imagine the past, including clay pots, accessories, and dogu clay figurines; Jan. 7-Feb. 9.

Kyoto University of Art and Design, Geijutsu-kan; (075) 791-9182; 2-116 Kitashirakawauryuzan-cho, Sakyu-ku, Kyoto; Chayama Station, Eizan Line. 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Free admission. Closed Sun., holidays, Jan. 31. www.geijutsu-kan.com/2013.1joumon.html.
