Hirabaru Historical Park


To date, the copper mirror known as “Naiko Kamonkyo” (excavated from the Hirabaru Square-Shaped Moated Burial Precinct at the Sone Ruins) is the oldest ancient mirror discovered in Japan and has been deemed an Important Cultural Asset by the government.
Hirabaru Historical Park was constructed in 1989 as a park where visitors can become familiar with history, culture, and nature (focusing mainly on the Hirabaru Ruins). Visitors will find a ceramic tile mural that recreates numerous artifacts from the excavation, stone benches here and there, and ancient oak and camphor trees! The actual artifacts from the excavation are on display at the Ito History Museum.
