Ishibutai Tomb, Asuka-mura

(4.2/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Behold the megalithic, ancient grave site of Ishibutai Tomb, believed to date back to the Asuka period (592-710 CE), and the burial site of Soga no Umako--member of the influential Soga clan and tireless proponent of Buddhism. Marvel at the construction techniques employed in hauling these gigantic boulders into their current configuration. Step into the inner chamber of the tomb and inspect the huge ceiling stones: one weighs 60 tons, the other an incredible 77 tons. Add Ishibutai Tomb and other attractions to your Asuka-mura trip itinerary using our Asuka-mura vacation builder.

  • Soga Soga emishi and Iruka family name first and foremost floating negative image tagging often is rather. But most helps Prince Shotoku in Japan laid the Foundation of the Japan Buddhist greats. Rather than as mere ruins to visit this Ishibutai Kofun is said to the Tomb, in the achievement of the most not want prominence.

  • Parking nearby is less (because there is a private parking to take advantage of the bicycle can be parked there. ) Admission to the tombs is 350 yen (JAF members only 300 yen) volunteers will explain thoroughly. Fee is good for people who like tombs. Too much was not impressed.

  • Rent a bike around, but it was really interesting! Go to the time of cherry blossoms and is also best. Elementary school first grade son would enjoy.
