Ozuka Ancient Burial Mound


The Ozuka Ancient Burial Mound is shaped like a keyhole and demonstrates considerably sophisticated construction, including a stone pillow and votive candle stand placed in the stone chamber. On display once again in the display room are frescos with their gorgeous pigmentation. Some of these frescos include an arrow case, shield, knights, and stars as well as two-legged round, upturned plant-like, and triangular patterns tinged in pigments of red, yellow, green, black,and white are depicted on the walls of the stone chamber. The brilliance of these depictions was enough to earn them the title of National Treasure, and the burial mound itself is undoubtedly the greatest decorative burial mound in Japan! On permanent display are artifacts as well as CG videos explaining the details of the artifacts collected.

*The Ozuka Burial Mound is opened to the public twice annually (please inquire directly for specific dates).
*About the Burial Mound: Government-Designated Historical Site; constructed at the end of the 6th century
