Features of this Exhibition

What is the significance of Kofun? Through the eyes of the world, this exhibition explores the features of the large keyhole-shaped burial mounds in the Japanese Archipelago. The rulers resting in the large mounds and the time they lived in are reconstructed through various lenses of architecture around the world including Chinese imperial mausolea, Western royal burial mounds and temples, as well as contemporary society and art imagery.
