Japanese train yard reveals luxury lodgings

A site excavated at a train yard in Japan is thought to have been a facility that provided food and lodgings to Korean and Chinese enyoys. The facility is mentioned in ancient manuscripts and dates to the 8th or 9th century CE.

So far two large buildings with columns have been found. Tin and copper spoons, laquerware, and other imported high end tableware has been found. [photo]
