It is a front-rear burial mound with a total length of about 77 meters, which is thought to have been built around the latter half of the 4th century. The burial mounds were lined up with haniwa on top of red clay and covered with white butterbur stones. From the huge front and rear burial mounds and the size of the stone chamber, it can be seen that the person buried here would have had great authority.
