Discover Jomon

The first Chapter of an ultimate Journey Experience: ‘The Great Story of Japan’

Discover Jomon is an extensive project to promote the southern Hokkaido region internationally.

With the support of leading archaeological and scientific investigation specialists on the Jomon culture, DENEB has developed a signature program that blends cultural discoveries, outdoor adventures, culinary treats, Arts & Crafts collaborations, and intimate moments of pampering. 

Our program features bespoke experiences adapted to the needs of each participant and anchored in DENEB’s values of acting for ecological sustainability, protecting biodiversity, preserving our world heritage, and contributing to the cultural vitality and economic prosperity of each host community we are involved in.

Journey to the Extraordinary

In order to promote a more sustainable lifestyle, DENEB has partnered with the Hakodate Jomon Culture Center to develop a project based on academic results whose goal is to present the Jomon culture and spirituality to journeyers, travelling individually or in small exclusive groups from April to November. 


The discovery of the Oshima Peninsula in Southern Hokkaido is an exceptional experience, where adventure mingles with an ancient history of over 10,000 years. 


With our storytellers and experts, this is an extraordinary cultural immersion in one of the most fascinating civilizations the world has ever known, to walk in the footsteps of the Jomon.

3 days and 2 nights accommodation. 


The itinerary is tailor-made according to the participants’ requests, who are free to choose 3 of the options below (each option corresponds to 1 day of the itinerary):
