Teshio River-mouth Archaeological Walk (Hokkaido, Japan)


The Teshio River-mouth Archaeological Site (天塩川口遺跡) is a 1500m by 200m section of oak-forested riverside, dotted with about 240 remains of 3rd till 8th Century AD pit-houses. Archaeologists from Hokkaido University and Tokyo University have reconstructed two such pit-houses. On this pleasant 2km walk, visitors can climb down into the reconstructed dwellings. The walk itself skirts a 1km section of Teshio River-mouth bank, through shady Mongolian oak groves. On the return, the loop continues along a gravel road, giving a glimpse of more contemporary rural Hokkaido living. The walk is accessible from the river by canoe, and would make a nice diversion on the final home stretch on the 6-day Teshio River canoe journey. See the full route overview at Hokkaido Wilds:
