2. Amazing Jomon Japan

Archaeologists and historians worldwide are fascinated with thousands of artefacts that have been dug up all over Japan that belonged to and that tell us about the prehistoric people we call the Jomon people.

Who were the Jomon people and where did they live?

The Jomon people were hunter-gathers who lived in pit dwellings and who lived roughly in the area that we call Japan today.  The Jomon culture is noted for having produced the earliest (or at least among the earliest) pottery in the world.

When did they live?

The Jomon people lived during postglacial times from 13,680 BC to 410 BC. They were a hunting-gathering-fishing tribal culture that existed roughly around the times of ancient civilizations in Mesopotamia, the Nile and the Indus Valley.

What was so amazing about the Jomon culture?

#1. One thing amazing about the Jomon culture is how long the Jomon way of life lasted … over 13,000 thousand years as well as the early date of the beginning of the period.

#2. The Jomon people are thought to have produced the oldest surviving examples of pottery in the world.

#3. Jomon people achieved sedentism which means they settled down in one place to live as early as 9,000 years ago and maintained a high level of craft production…all very unusual for hunter-gatherers in early postglacial times.

#4. Archaeologists think the Jomon hunting-gathering culture was unusual because although it was a stone age culture (historians call prehistoric people who used stone tools a Mesolithic culture), it also had some highly complex characteristics of Neolithic cultures which usually refer to people who:

  • made many clay vessels,

  • had an organized and sophisticated lifestyle of collecting and foraging for food and practiced a simple kind of agriculture by cultivating a small number of plants.

“That end of the Ice Age was accompanied by the first of the two most decisive changes in the Japanese history: the invention of pottery. In the usual experience of archeologists, inventions flow from mainlands to islands, and small peripheral societies aren’t supposed to contribute revolutionary advances to the rest of the world. It therefore astonished archeologists to discover that the world’s oldest known pottery was made in Japan 12,700 years ago,” said Jared Diamond, a non-fiction science author.

What is the Jomon culture famous for?

Jomon culture is most famous for its pottery — Jomon pottery pieces are possibly the earliest existing pottery artefacts, or at least among the earliest pottery discoveries in the world. Jomon culture is also well known for the expressiveness of its ceramic art, for the variety of surface textures, decorations, shapes and styles.

The most elaborate forms of pottery made in the deep central mountainous areas are especially admired. In fact, the Jomon culture takes its name from a typical form of decoration of its pots, cord marking which is called Jomon 縄文 in Japanese.

The different periods of the Jomon era are divided according to the different characteristics of pottery of each period, see this Chronology here.

The Jomon culture is also renowned for the fishing technology. The fishhooks and togglehead harpoons that the Jomon hunters used to catch fish and sea mammals with, were state-of-the-art technology, for prehistoric times that is.

    Thankyou!

  2. Thank you, very much! This is an EXCELLENT reference for ancient Japan, displaying a wide range of information on subjects very hard to research elsewhere. The Britannica, Wikipedia, and online libraries, Google included, have not been able to match this site in my research.

    Keep up the awesome work! 🙂

    Is the Jomon period related to the Dravidian culture (Indus Valley)/
    Frank Jesudian

    • There are some genetic commonalities between the Indian populations and Jomon as well as post-Jomon era (especially CAS-Indo-Aryan, Silk Route and Buddhism connections) Japanese populations. And more on the mtDNA side. “Haplogroups H, F*, and O2a, which were observed at significantly higher proportions among tribal groups of South India, led the same authors to single them out as having an indigenous Indian origin. Only O3e was envisaged as originating (recently) east of India (20), substantiating a linguistic correlation with the TB speakers of Southeast Asia” Source: A Prehistory of Indian Y Chromosomes http://www.pnas.org/content/103/4/843.full. Stephen Oppenheimer also suggests very convincingly in his book with many lines of support that there are a Island SEA or Sundaland lineages that radiated out to India and elsewhere, including Japan. There are also many anthropological and archaeological similarities – myths and legends, mother earth deity/figurines / phallic implements – dolmens. M130 lineage is thought to have reached Japan from India. Beyond that, deep Austronesian or Austro-Asiatic as well as Central Asian migratory lineages may have close connections, but all of these still need further clarifying.

    • Frank Jesudian,

      Yes, there is a direct commonality between the M7 dna Austro (southern) Black Asian Japanese Jomon, and the original M2a dna Black Afro-Asiatics of the land known over the years as:

      Sindhu (Black Asian Sanskrit)
      Hindu (white Asian Caucasian Brahma)
      Indhu (Transitional lingua franca)
      India (white European Caucasian)

      The commonality stems from the:

      N.E. Horn Black Daughter L3, who gave birth to Black Daughter “M” who gave birth to:

      M1 dna Kimit (Black) Ta (Land) tribes

      M2 dna Kimit (Black) Ta (Land) tribes

      M2a dna Native Black Afro-Asians

      M3 dna Native Black S.E. Asians

      M4 dna (non-Muslim) Black Aurabs

      M5 dna Native Black Khemr Khassi of N.E. Sindhu, who are the bridge between the original S.E. & S.W. Black Asians

      M6 dna Native Black S.E. Asians

      M7 dna Central Black Japanese Jomon

      After their most archaic ancestors:

      Keilor Man
      Coobool Man
      Mo Khiew Man
      Minotagawa Man
      Central Black Japanese Jomon

      appeared, descendants of the original:

      M2a dna
      M3 dna,
      M4 dna
      M5 dna
      M6 dna
      M7 dna

      Native Black Asians took a coastal route from Southern Sindhu, to Australia, to the Philippines, to Formosa (Taiwan), to the Ryukyu islands—which before the last ice age were all still connected to the Asian mainland.

      After this original migration of various Black tribes out of Black Land (OOBL) to Japan, the Native Black Jomon suddenly appeared around 13,000 B.C.

      And the previous, along with all of the other pure objective, mathematical, factual and actual scientific truth that i recently provided in my latest posts, are the answers to your hard question.

    • After living along the entire west coast of the western hemisphere for hundreds of years, my B dna Black Afro-Pacific islander ancestors headed inland.

      Thus, our B4a1a1 dna relatives known as the:

      Anasazi
      Hopi
      Zoni
      Zuni
      Yuma
      Pima
      Pueblo
      Jimmez
      Spirit Cave Man
      Wizard Beach Man
      Horn Shelter Woman
      Wilson-Leonard Man

      became the very 1st peaceful settlers of:

      Nevada
      Arizona
      Utah
      New Mexico
      Colorado
      Homa Okolah
      Texas

  4. Yay! Thank you! I’m doing a SA on The Jomon Pottery at school, and this was really quite helpful!

  5. Pingback: WHO ARE THE JOMON PEOPLE? | Okunomichi

  6. To me, the most amazing craft by Jomon people is the Megami (Venus) of Jomon found Tohoku recently.

    This looks so modern, and you would not be surprised if somebody said this is a modern statue in Louvre. And what’s more, she is wearing a trousers !!

  7. The dna extracted from the oldest human bones found in the Qafzeh & Skhul caves in Fin-koo Kanahn or Phoenicia Canaan or Yisrael or or Palestine prove, 3 waves of L1, L2 & L3 dna Black tribes successfully left out of Black Land (OOBL), migrated to, and became the very 1st inhabitants of Fin-koo Kanahn.

  8. Nimrod and the conglomeration then proceeded to build the:

    L1 dna Black Sumerian Empire
    L1 dna Black Babylonian Empire
    L2 dna Black Akkadian Empire
    L3 dna Black Erekkian Empire

    These Matriarchal Black Kingdoms are the original Matriarchal Black Civilizations of Mesopatamia.

  9. Black Daughter M2’s Black descendants left up out Black Land, and from living in a slightly different environment than Black Land morphed / turned into the:

    M2a Black Afro-Asiatic India
    M3 Black Afro-Asiatic S.E. Asians
    M4 Black (non-Muslim) Aurabs
    M5 Black Austro-Asiatic Khmer Khassi
    M7 Black (Central) Japanese Jomon
    M7b / M7c / M7e Black Laotians
    M7c3c Black Philippinoes
    M8 Black Chinese
    M9 Black Tibet
    M11 Black Bangladesh
    M23 Black Madagascar, my
    M27, M28, M29 Black Papua N.Guinea
    M42 Black Australians
    M48 Black (non-Muslim) Aurabs

  10. After the ancestors of the present day A1, A3, A4 and A5 dna mulatto Mongol Sino Koreans, C1 & C16 dna mulatto Mongol Sino Ainu, the C2 dna mulatto Mongol Sino Han Chinese, the C3 dna mulatto Mongol Tibetans, and the present day N9a dna mulatto Mongol Sino Yayoi left left Siberia, they invaded, raped, robbed, murdered, and stole the land from the original M7a1 dna Black North Koreans, and the M7a dna Black South Koreans, the mulatto Mongol Sino conglomeration then invaded the Ryu kyu islands.

    For some unknown reason, the mulatto Mongol Sino conglomeration then turned on & enslaved the C2 / C16 dna mulatto Mongol Ainu.

    The mulatto Mongol Sino conglomeration then raped, robbed, murdered & stole the land AND culture from the original M7 dna (Central) Black Japanese Jomon, the N9b dna (Southern) Black Japanese Jomon, and the D1 dna (Northern) Black Japanese Jomon.

  11. Because the sea levels before the last ice age were approximately 500 feet lower than what they are now, descendants of the M7 dna Black Japanese Jomon and their grandchildren the (Northern) D1 dna Black Japanese Jomon then got in boats and sailed to South America.

    From S. America the (Northern) D1 dna Black Japanese Jomon then migrated north to the Yucatan area of what’s now called Mexico.

    A short time later, the (Northern) D1 dna Black Japanese Jomon then formed the Black Olmec Empire.

    They also left the oldest human skulls in Mexico known as:
    Chan Hol Man
    Eva of Naharone
    Penon Woman III
    Naia the Water Nymph

    Per my Mentor, the highly acclaimed molecular biologist Dr. Silvia Gonzales, the DNA she extracted from the oldest human skulls in Mexico was from the D1 haplogroup.

    The only other place on the face of the earth where the D1 haplogroup can be found is on the Japanese island of Honshu—where the most mongolized (Northern) D1 dna Black Japanese Jomon hale from.

    These pure objective, mathematical, factual and actual scientific facts prove the direct connection between the (Northern) Black Japanese Jomon and the original inhabitants of Cancun Mexico

  12. Some time after the (Northern) D1 dna Black Japanese Jomon relocated to the Yucatan and formed the Olmec Empire, their children the D2 dna Aleuts, Ute’s, Paiute’s, and the Shoshone headed north and migrated to, and became the very 1st inhabitants of Alaska.

  13. A short while later, the C3 / Q dna mulatto Mongol (Sino) conglomeration invaded, raped, robbed, murdered, enslaved & stole the land AND culture of the original:

    M3 dna Black S.E. Asians
    M6 dna Black S.E. Asians
    M7b, M7c & M7e dna Black Laotians
    M7c3c dna Black Philipinoes
    M8 dna Black Chinese
    M9 dna Black Tibetans
    M11 dna Black Bangladesh
    R9 dna Black Chinese
    R10 dna S.W. China Na (Black) Khi (man)
    R11 dna Black Tibetans
    B4a dna Black Taiwanese
    B4a1a dna Black Philipinoes
    B4a1a1 dna Black Micronesians
    B4a1a1 dna Black Tahitians
    B4a1a1a1 dna Black Samoans
    B4a1a1a1a dna Black Rapa Nui
    B4a1a1a1a1 dna Black Maori
    B4a1a1a1a1 dna Black Moriori

    In response to the invasion by the Q dna,
    C3 dna, Ag gene, Ab3st gene, Afb1b3 gene, and the ALDH2 virus harboring (Sino) mulatto Mongols, the M8 dna Black Chinese, and their (coastal) C1 dna Black Chinese children & my B4a1a1 dna Black Afro-Pacific islander ancestors from Papua New Guinea got in boats and sailed to South America.

    The C1 dna (coastal) Black Chinese then migrated north to the Yucatan. Their children, the C2 dna Black Chinese then migrated to the U.S.

    My B dna Black Afro-Pacific islander relatives migrated to Monte Verde Chili, and Fells Cave Chili, then migrated up the entire west coast of South America, the entire west coast of Central America, the entire west coast of Mexico, the entire Bah Jahooty peninsula—and left my specific Pericu kinsmen there—they then inhabited all of California, the entire west coast of Oregon and the entire west coast of Washington, up to the Canadian border

    After that, a bottleneck theory or some natural disaster occurred that wiped out all of the:

    Black Nile Valley L1
    Black S.W. Akintay L2
    Black N.E. Horn L3

    DNA tribes from Kimit (Black) Ta (Land) & M7 dna (Central) Black Japanese Jomon.

    Thus, the Black Chinese’s M8 dna is the oldest haplogroup of America, followed by the D1 dna (Northern) Black Japanese Jomon’s haplogroup of Naia, the (coastal) C1 dna Black Chinese haplogroup, the D2 dna Aleut’s, Ute’s, Paiute’s and Shoshone haplogroup, the C2 dna haplogroup of the U.S., and my B2 dna Black Afro-Pacific islander haplogroup.

    All of the previous was the original pure objective, mathematical, factual and actual DNA migration pattern to America.

    .

  14. A while later, the C3 / Q dna mulatto Mongol (Sino) conglomeration invaded, raped, robbed, murdered, enslaved & stole the land AND culture of the original:

    M3 dna Black S.E. Asians
    M6 dna Black S.E. Asians
    M7b/M7c/M7e dna Black Laotians
    M7c3c dna Black Philipinoes
    M8 dna Black Chinese
    M9 dna Black Tibetans
    M11 dna Black Bangladesh
    R9 dna Black Chinese
    R10 dna S.W. Na (Black) Khi (man)
    R11 dna Black Tibetans
    B4a dna Black Taiwanese
    B4a1a dna Black Philipinoes
    B4a1a1 dna Black Micronesians
    B4a1a1 dna Black Tahitians
    B4a1a1a1 dna Black Samoans
    B4a1a1a1a dna Black Rapa Nui
    B4a1a1a1a1 dna Black Maori
    B4a1a1a1a1 dna Black Moriori

    In response to the invasion by the Q dna, C3 dna, Ag gene, Ab3st gene, Afb1b3 gene, and the ALDH2 virus harboring (Sino) mulatto Mongols, the M8 dna Black Chinese, and their (coastal) C1 dna Black Chinese children & my B4a1a1 dna Black Afro-Pacific islander ancestors from Papua New Guinea got in boats and sailed to South America.

    The C1 dna (coastal) Black Chinese then migrated north to the Yucatan. Their children, the C2 dna Black Chinese then migrated to the U.S.

    My B dna Black Afro-Pacific islander relatives migrated to Monte Verde Chili, and Fells Cave Chili, then migrated up the entire west coast of South America, the entire west coast of Central America, the entire west coast of Mexico, the entire Bah Jahooty peninsula—and left my specific Pericu kinsmen there—they then inhabited all of California, the entire west coast of Oregon and the entire west coast of Washington, up to the Canadian border

    After that, a bottleneck theory or some natural disaster occurred that wiped out all of the:

    Black Nile Valley L1
    Black S.W. Akintay L2
    Black N.E. Horn L3

    dna tribes from Kimit (Black) Ta (Land) and the M7 dna (Central) Black Japanese Jomon.

    Thus, the Black Chinese’s M8 dna is the oldest haplogroup of America, followed by the D1 dna (Northern) Black Japanese Jomon’s haplogroup of Naia, the (coastal) C1 dna Black Chinese haplogroup, the D2 dna Aleut’s, Ute’s, Paiute’s and Shoshone haplogroup, the C2 dna haplogroup of the U.S., and my B2 dna Black Afro-Pacific islander haplogroup.

    All of the previous was the original, pure objective, mathematical, factual and actual DNA migration pattern to America.

    .

  15. Hundreds of years later, a conglomeration the A2 / X2a dna mulatto Mongols from Siberia, Russia—i.e. the:

    A2 dna Buryats (the source)
    A2 dna Yupiks
    A2 dna Eskimoes
    A2 dna Inuits
    A2 dna Na Innay
    A2 dna Navahoes
    A2 dna Nuatles
    A2 dna Apaches
    A2 dna Aztecs
    A2 dna Mayans
    A2 dna Mexicans

    invaded, raped, robbed, murdered & stole the land AND culture of We the People, the original:

    M8 dna
    C1 dna
    C2 dna
    D1 dna
    D2 dna

    Native Black Americans.

  16. Our people have become so mongolized, our original B4a1a1 dna regressed down to B2 dna.

    Thus, many of our Black Afro-Pacific islander kinsmen now look like they’re just an A2 dna mulatto Mongol from Siberia.

    But thanks to another mentor of mine, the highly acclaimed Harvard University Professor of genetics Dr. David Reich, his certified scientific Abstracts prove that in the 1st instance, B dna Black Afro-Pacific islanders were the very 1st people of America—not the latterday invading A2 dna mulatto Mongols from Siberia, Russia.
