One can conclude little or nothing about the status of women in early Japan from the haniwa figurines from the tumuli period. The only distinguishing feature between most figurines labelled as male and those labelled as female are that the male figurines represent some economic function while the "female" figurines are more abstract. These are more likely modern impositions; figurines representing hunters or othe economic functions could very well be female figurines, though we naturally assume, from our own modern perspective, that they're male.
tumuli (this is Latin, in Japanese, they're called kofun ). The best picture we have of early Japanese life is afforded by the small clay figurines, called haniwa that were deposited in these tumuli. Their nature or purpose is unknown. Are they magic? Departing gifts? Needless to say, they provide a valuable picture of early Japanese life, particularly the haniwa of houses. The figurines also represent men and women, and the earliest haniwa do not make a clear distinction between men and women. However, as

Ancient Japan
Ancient Japan to 1185 It is not known when humans first settled on the Japanese archipelago. It was long believed that there was no Paleolithic occupation in Japan, but since World War II thousands of sites have been unearthed throughout the country, yielding a wide variety of Paleolithic tools. These include both core tools, made by chipping away the surface of a stone, and flake tools, made by working with a stone flake broken off from a larger piece of stone. There is little doubt that the people who used these implements moved to Japan from the Asian continent. At one stage, land connections via what are now the Korea and Tsushima straits made immigration from the Korean peninsula possible, while another connection, via what are now the Soya and Tsugaru straits, allowed people to come in from northeastern Asia. The Paleolithic Period in Japan is variously dated from 30,000 to 10,000 years ago, although the argument has been made for a Lower Paleolithic culture prior to 35,000 BC. Nothing certain is known of the culture of the period, though it seems likely that people lived by hunting and gathering, used fire, and made their homes either in pit-type dwellings or in caves. No bone or horn artifacts of the kind associated with this period in other areas of the world have yet been found in Japan. Since there was no knowledge whatsoever of pottery, the period is referred to as the Pre-Ceramic era.

Ancient times

The Japanese archipelago was first inhabited more than 100,000 years ago, when it still comprised part of the continental Asian land mass. Archaeological discoveries have revealed that the ancient people inhabiting the archipelago in the Old Stone (Paleolithic) age lived mainly by hunting and gathering. The New Stone (Neolithic) age, dating from about 10,000 years ago, witnessed the manufacture of refined stone implements, the development of advanced hunting techniques using bows and arrows, and the production of earthenware containers for cooking and storing food. The era lasting from around 8000 to 300 B.C. is called the Jomon period after the jomon (cord-marked) style of pottery.
Agriculture, primarily rice planting, and metalworking techniques were introduced from the Asian continent around 300 B.C. The inhabitants of Japan used iron farming tools in their daily life to increase agricultural production and bronze swords and mirrors for religious rituals. The division of labor widened the gap between ruling and subject classes at this time, and many small states were formed across the country. The era lasting from 300 B.C. to A.D. 300 is called the Yayoi period after the wheel-turned pottery that was produced during this time.
Gradually the small states were unified, and by the fourth century a strong political authority centered in Yamato (now Nara Prefecture) ruled over the nation. The period from the fourth century through the sixth century saw great developments in agriculture as well as the introduction of Chinese culture, including Confucianism and Buddhism, via Korea. By the end of the fourth century contact had been established between Japan and the kingdoms on the Korean Peninsula. From Korea, such industrial arts as weaving, metalworking, tanning, and shipbuilding, which originally had been developed in China under the Han dynasty, were introduced into the country.

Hi Evander,
Partial response:
> I have a copy of the Gm chart from the webpage. I have been unable to find charts for any of the eighty or so other groups included in Dr. Matsumoto's book.
I made a quick translation of my excerpt presentation (in Japanese) of Dr. Matsumoto's work.

Caral No. Name Evander Date :2003/02/12(Wed) 01:02 I suppose there were people living in the mountain valleys and certainly on the coast many thousands of years before Caral was founded. My questions and suppositions ran wild in the wake of discovery of an advanced urbanization in the Americas roughly contemporary with the earliest in Egypt and Mesopotamia. There is a tremendous gap from that time until the time of what once was thought to be the oldest urban settlement of significant size, Chav?n de Hu?ntar.

    Astronomy Among Ancient Tombs and Relics in Asuka, Japan
    By Steve Renshaw and Saori Ihara March, 1997 The Asuka area, south of Nara, is one of the most historically rich in Japan. Whether originating here or due to migration from Kyushu, the Asuka area became the center around which most of Japan united in early centuries of the "Christian Era". Reliable historical evidence indicates that exchanges between scholars of classic Chinese principles and the more aristocratic members of the Japanese court occurred as early as the mid 6th century. These exchanges not only gave rise to the infusion of technology, religion, and other aspects of Chinese culture, but astronomical calendar reckoning, astrology, and divination as well. Unlike Kyoto and Nara, most of the towns in the Asuka area are rather small. There are many hills and small mountains with farms and assorted orchards mixed between. Among these, a visitor may find both remains of and intact kofun (tombs) of emperors and noblemen atop hills or high plateaus. From the perspective of archaeoastronomy, one of the most interesting of these is Takamatsu Zuka Kofun . While the exact date of construction is unknown, this tomb (discovered in 1972) provides one of the earliest and most interesting and definitive examples of Chinese/Korean astronomical influence on Japan in the 7th century.
