12. Nagatsuka Kofun

Nagatsuka Kofun is a keyhole-shaped mounded tomb located between the large-scale Nintoku-tenno-ryo Kofun [2-1] and Gobyoyama Kofun [29].

The mound length is 106 m, and the height of the square front part is 10.6 m. The results of a ground-penetrating radar survey clarified that a pit-style stone compartment was used for the burial facility.

Both cylindrical and representational haniwa have been unearthed from the mound and the moat.

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

Walk 1 minute to the south from Mozu Station on the JR Hanwa Line.
