Kousge’s Symbol


Take one step into Kosuge and you’ll see symbols that look like hieroglyphics everywhere (on signs, t-shirts, etc.). Since pottery and stone tools from the Middle Jomon Period (2500-1500 B.C.) have been excavated here, we know people have enjoyed a life in Kosuge as a safe haven since ancient times. These symbols represent the images of daily life in Kosuge:

The sunriseTwittering birdsThe flowing Tama River headwatersTrout swimming in the riverSprouting vegetation

The moon shinning brilliantly at night


When you visit Kosuge, why not also think of the ancient people who shared this daily imagery?
