Travel Guide - Archaeological Museum of Kojindani


In July, 1984 three-hundred and fifty-eight bronze swords were discovered in Hikawa Town, Shimane Prefecture. These were followed by the discovery of sixteen bronze halberds and six bronze bells in 1985. All these items were designated as National Treasures in 1988. Due to this discovery, the Izumo Region was confirmed to have been a very active region in the ancient days. The Kojindani Ruins were viewed as having much historical value for learning about that past and they became a key to understanding the Japan's ancient history.
The museum exhibits a powerful collection of images called "Excavation Documents" that show the discovery site, as well as replicas of the items that were excavated and information regarding the ruins as well as explanations of the mysteries still surrounding the site.
