The Nagase Takahama artifacts are a large complex of artifacts from the Yayoi period (300BC to 300AD), discovered during excavation works for the National Highway and a sewerage treatment plant. Among a number of discoveries, the most significant was a clump of haniwa, which are clay figures placed in burial mounds to protect the dead. The Takahama haniwa are designated cultural artifacts, and are on permanent display at the Hawai Museum of History and Folklore.
