Mukaiyama Tumulus - Yonago, Tottori Prefecture

About 30 minutes walk from Yodoe Station JR

Near the sites of the Yayoi period (300 BC to 300 AD) of Japan's largest "Mukibanda site", "Kamiyodo Hakuhono Oka Museum", "Kodaino Oka Park," there is.

Mukaiyama Tumulus were built between the late 5th century 6th century.

The hill in front, where the Mukaiyama Tumulus.
I would recommend that you visit by car.

Near the Mukibanda site is the sites of the Yayoi Period, Japan's largest settlement. Its size, Yoshinogari site, that there five times.
Kamiyodo Hakuhono Oka Museum is part of Buddhist wall paintings and Buddha statues that were excavated from the site of Kamiyodo Haiji, on display inside the main hall have been restored to full size. Kamiyodo Haiji is a temple that was destroyed by fire around 1000 AD by the waste was built around 700 AD.

To the untutored eye, I could not tell which one tumulus.

Than the photos, some places are more developed.
