  • 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.
