Ishibutai Tomb, Asuka-mura
(4.2/5 based on 180+ 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.

  • On Sunday afternoon, Asuka station went by bicycle. More worries about it because there are signs here and there. Just a pretty Hill is Kitui. Steep, is not that long. 悔yamimashita the miser a few hundred yen, no motorized bicycle. Arrives, and stone around Park square I turned, kids baseball or the. So, there are pretty people, including tourists. Exposed stone scene itself isn't very big, but is the Tomb itself is large. First place who made what for I don't know old I was.
