33-2. Konda-maruyama Kofun

Konda-maruyama Kofun is a round mounded tomb constructed next to the outer moat on the north side of Ojin-tenno-ryo Kofun [33-1] and is considered to be related to Ojin-tenno-ryo Kofun as a satellite tomb.

The mound’s diameter is 50 m, and its height is 7 m.

The gilt-bronze horse trappings, which were reportedly excavated in 1848 from this tomb, are stored in the Konda Hachimangu Shrine located nearby. The saddle fittings and other splendid horse trappings (designated as National Treasures) are believed to have been brought over from the northeastern part of China or the Korean peninsula.

The construction period dates to the first half of the 5th century.
