Tomb of Emperor Nintoku (仁徳天皇陵)

Other Historic Site/Building

This is a keyhole-shaped tumulus (a form of ancient Imperial grave) in Sakai Ward, Sakai City, Osaka Prefecture, and is the largest among the old burial mounds throughout the country. It can be counted as one of the world’s three largest tombs alongside King Khufu’s Pyramid and the Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor and it is estimated that it was constructed over 20 years in the middle of the fifth century. Items such as swords, armor, vases, and dishes were excavated in 1872. Although according to the Imperial Household Agency it is supposed to be the tomb of the 16th Emperor Nintoku, the person actually buried has not been specified, and in recent years the name “Daisen Burial Mound” is used. There is a circuit path in the surroundings which takes about an hour to walk.

          While Osaka prefecture is the country's second smallest prefecture, its capital, Osaka City, is the country's third-largest and arguably one of the most popular in the Kansai region thanks to its vibrant nightlife, the Osaka people's openness, and its much-loved cuisine, which has earned it the nickname "the nation's kitchen."
