七ツ森古墳群の彼岸花の茎が。

城下町・竹田エリア

荻・神原エリア

国指定史跡 七ツ森古墳群の彼岸花(曼珠沙華)の茎が少しずつ出てきました。

例年、9月中旬くらいになると古墳群の周りを鮮やかに彩ります。

ここ七ツ森古墳群は豊肥地区最古の畿内型古墳で、古墳時代初期、3世紀末のものと推定されています。(卑弥呼や景行天皇の時代に近い)

もともと7基の古墳があったようですが、調査が行われた時点では4基だったようです。
A号古墳、B号古墳、C号古墳、D号古墳とあり、D号古墳からは垂玉や剣、腕輪や三角緑神獣鏡などが多数出土しています。


The stems of red spider lilies of the Nanatsumori-kofungun (the group of tumulus), a nationally designated historic site, have come out little by little.

Every year, around mid-September, the area around the tumulus is vividly colored.

The Nanatsumori-kofun Group is the oldest Kinai-type tumulus in the Hohi area, and is estimated to date from the early Kofun period and the end of the 3rd century. (Close to the days of Himiko and Emperor Keiko)

It seems that there were originally 7 tumuluses, but at the time of the resarch, there were 4 tumuluses.
There are A tumulus, B tumulus, C tumulus, and D tumulus, and many Taredamas, swords, bracelets have been excavated from the D tumulus.

There is Road Station Sugou nearby so that you can find fresh vegetables and special products grown in Taketa city.
