The Hamamatsu City Museum displays tens of thousands of years of the history of Hamamatsu, from prehistoric to modern times. Exhibits include a mounted skeleton of a Naumann's elephant which once lived in northern China and the Japanese archipelago from roughly 500,000 to 15,000 years ago, tools and ornaments excavated from ruins and ancient tombs, and much more. In addition, the adjoining nationally designated archaeological site, Shijimizuka Remains, is the site of early to late Jomon period village where the remains of dwellings, burial grounds and shell mounds have been discovered, and you can view shell mounds and reconstructions of houses of that period as well as a relocated and reconstructed farmhouse typical of the eastern coastal region of Hamana Lake in the mid-nineteenth century. The Hamamatsu City Museum and the Shijimizuka Remains are located in Shijimizuka Park and surrounded by nature. The park is free to enter, and it is enjoyed as a leisure spot by citizens.
