STORY

In the age when keyhole-shaped burial mounds (kofun) unique to this country were being built, many were constructed on the Miyazaki Plain, now known as the Saitobaru Burial Mounds. In many areas of Japan, the land occupied by burial mounds was gradually converted to use for other purposes, but on the Miyazaki Plain the mounds have been preserved in much the same shape as when they were first built. This is the only place in Japan where the mounds spread across the tableland have retained their original shape and design, and no other structures have been built near them. Visitors have an unobstructed view of the kofun and can enjoy these historical mounds from any angle.
