Overview of Saga

“A trip to Prehistoric Japan.”

Despite being Kyushu Island’s smallest prefecture, Saga has been inhabited since prehistoric times. Yoshinogari Historical Park, an archaeological site dating back to prehistoric 300 BC to 300 AD, is one of the prefecture’s main attraction depicting how the Japanese have lived in those times. Saga is also popular for the Rice Terraces of Hamanoura, a collection of around 300 rice terraces that’s quite a sight to behold.
