The comment to yesterday's blog was whether we had seen any chards? We did not see any and being a Heritage Site we would not have been allowed to take any away. These Jomon chards, however, were given to us by people who lived where there were thousands of pieces of broken pottery. They lived in Chiba which is East of Tokyo and these pieces would have been from the very early Jomon era and would date back from about 7000 or more years ago.
