  • Iwasaki Museum until mounds Park. Building is the main building and the General is composed by two of the exhibition hall in the Tomb. General mountain Tomb Museum, are located pretty far away from the main building. Content exhibited both the size of the Museum are quite small but is gorgeous. Gold Iron sword excavated from the inariyama Kofun in the main building in the national treasure, inariyama sword are on display. Written on the front and back of the sword, and also exhibited at in the case are filled with nitrogen gas, gold can read clearly. General pile using yokoana tombs within tombs Museum, and has exhibited shows were buried. I think viewing fee 200 yen (both included) is quite reasonable.

  • 11 Saitama citizens ' day give guests free of charge entry fee 200 yen. Maybe that's why many families, as well as stamps and stayed. Maybe I more quiet I think. Magatama-making in the area, became concerned about the pay is a little bit more small Magatama wanted if I want and I've stopped.

  • About the attraction. Very open and also very good. From watching first tumulus mounds arranged around them to the Museum. Maintained a great exhibit. About the facility. Exhibits are very readable, well-coiffed. Taking a picture is ok. So there are a lot of parking cars but OK. Well maintained trail, about an hour and a half around. Information about the service. No particular complaints. Cheap at the price is 200 yen for adults. Feel the romance of ancient, very good location.
