The keyhole-shaped mound itself is accessible to anyone wishing to see the surrounding city and wider areas from its peak. The second mound across the road is also accessible, but is partially hidden by trees and shrubs and not commonly used as a walking area by the locals. It is slightly less elevated, and smaller in size with a diameter of 89 meters. Unlike its keyhole-shaped neighbor, its form is more like a ‘scallop’. Numerous haniwa were also extracted from within the smaller second mound during the excavation. It’s still worth a look however, and its grassy slopes provide yet another worthy challenge for those seeking exercise amongst the trees and nature that covers it.
Have a great weekend.
