Restored faces of men from the Jomon and Yayoi periods
Comparison between Jomon and Yayoi people shows that Yayoi people had a narrow, flat face with a flat nose. They also had single-edged thick eyelids, thin brows and a thin beard. Their eye sockets were round as opposed to Jomon people, who had angular eye sockets.
