A bicycle rode through the mist fountain in the Omori Shell Mound Ruins Garden

About 300 meters north of the Omori Shell Ruins monument, there is the Omori Shell Mound Ruins Garden. Dr. Morse discovered the shell mound in 1877 when he looked at the strata on the site of this park.

In the park, there is a monument to Omori Shell Mound, a bust of Dr. Morse, and detached specimens of shell layers, etc. The atmosphere is quite different from that of the Omori Shell Ruins monument that seems to have been forcibly erected in a narrow space beside the railroad tracks. After all, the real thing is treated differently. The land around the shell mound has been developed into a park where many local children play.

There is also a mist fountain in the park, which seems to have nothing to do with Omori Shell Mound, the birthplace of Japanese archaeology, and mist sprays from the ground twice an hour. When I visited, the timing seemed to be just right, and the mist was pouring out around the fountain. It was as if a thick fog had formed. I don't know the relationship between the mist and the shell mounds.
