  • Close to national treasure "gold inariyama sword". So if you don't recognise history conveyed a great discovery. Was just hoping to put in the tomb "General mountain Tomb Museum" for construction to see! (It is not until the end of the 2/2018 from 11/15/2017. ) How do not, but I was disappointed.

  • 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.
