Yayoi a Japanese culture following the Jomon period and dated to c.300 bc–ad 300. It was marked by the introduction of rice cultivation, and the appearance of large burial mounds has suggested the emergence of an increasingly powerful ruling class. It is named after a street in Tokyo where its characteristic pottery (chiefly wheel-made) was first discovered.
