Examples of "burial_mounds"

These include the Toguzan burial mounds, the Kyogaoka burial mounds (circa sixth century AD), and the Mukaiyama burial mounds (early seventh century). The Toguzan kofun is said to be the grave of crown prince Kinashi no Karu no Miko, son of the nineteenth emperor, who in the Kojiki was banished to Iyo by his brother.

Japan developed its unique keyhole-shaped burial mounds, which are called "Kofun" (古墳 - the word is used for burial mounds of all shapes), and the period from 250 to 538 is called the Kofun period. Although 50 years ago it was believed that these mounds had initially been influenced by burial mounds in China via the Korean peninsula, Yayoi-period mounds are generally regarded as their predecessors. It is now believed that burial mounds of Korea built in the 5th and 6th centuries may have been influenced by the "kofun" of Japan.)
