A Mysterious Tomb Embedded in a Community
Aug 2021 • Friends
This tomb and burial mound is surrounded by the local Yanagimoto community, located within a small park. The local community puts on an evening light display every September, in which this round mound and its trench add shape and character to the display.
When this tomb was excavated, many treasures were discovered in the burial chamber, leading many to think that whoever was buried here might have been a head-of-state. A museum nearby has recreated that burial chamber and provides even more details about this mysterious tomb.
This tomb is a short walk from JR Yanagimoto Station.

Burial mound in park
Oct 2020 • Solo
It is a small burial mound near JR Yanagimoto station. Unlike many other tombs that are under the management of Imperial Household Agency, this one is freely accessible, because the buried person is unknown. The area is arranged as a park.

Ancient Kofun; Peaceful Pond
Oct 2018 • Couples
There's a pleasant view of this Kofun from the Yamanobe no Michi trail. The burial mound is now used as an orchard. In the past these mounds were surrounded by moats and a remnant still exists. For more fun, trek the entire trail. A new guidebook provides further details: "The Poet's Realm; Japan's Oldest Road." Available on Amazon.
