Makimuku Ruins (纒向遺跡)

 0744429111  Sakurai City Nara Prefecture Turned Area

These ruins, the biggest of the Yayoi period, reaches about two kilometers east and west and about 1.5 kilometers north and south of the Makimuku alluvial fan. This group of archeological sites from the first half of the third century is believed to be either the last Yayoi burial mounds or perhaps the oldest kofun tumuli. Visitors can see traces of the area's ancient history amongst its natural beauty created by a mild climate and four seasons.
