Experts at the municipal education board and Kansai University’s Archaeological Research Institute said that the newly discovered pyramid-like burial, which has been named the Miyakozuka tomb, is a terraced pyramid made of multiple stone layers. So far, researchers have excavated stepped layers made of stones packed with soil on three sides of the mound. Based on the height of the mound, it is believed that the tomb consists of seven or eight stone layers.







Archaeologists in Japan have discovered that a large mound in the village of Asuka in Nara Prefecture contains a pyramid-shaped tomb underneath

Great post. This area seems like it needs serious investigation, its known for these fantastic finds.

it must have taken years to plow through all that jungle and so neatly.

It's kind of obvious that that mound is a pyramid. Hidden in plain sight. I guess you can't see things that you don't think are there.

Such populated Islands, you think someone would have noticed this before. I suppose some did, told others, and were laughed at in the past. That's life. It is also best not to tell anyone if you see a UFO.

Japanese archaeology moves at sedate pace given that they have tens of thousands of sites to chose from.

Strange how people have been living on those Islands so long. The islands have always had natural disasters. I suppose at one time it was a paradise, not an industrial nation.

what mound?
i see wells to collect rain water and the entrance to a bunker built for what is expected to come. where is the mound?

They have excellent resources of seafood, good climate in the south and just enough fertile places to make agriculture successful.

Now what was this about a jungle?

It fascinates me that pyramids can be found all over the earth in ancient times throughout just about every culture. To me, it shows that no matter how far back you look, the various races of earth simply didn't live in a vacuum. They clearly comingled and shared culture and knowledge with one another.

I would love nothing more than to see earth as it was 10,000+ years ago, pre-diluge.

Well this is awfully curious:




Most important thing to out ancients were the season so I'd bet it was certainly a calendar of sorts. Reminds me in a way of lunar calendars at Chaco Canyon.

To me, it demonstrates the fact that without advanced engineering and materials, a pyramid is the easiest way to build the tallest possible stable structure.

Pile rocks or dirt straight up and it falls over. Put them on a slope and they don't.

Not even just the fact they would fall over if it wasn't in the shape, the base itself would crack and become unstable if it was say just a giant cube.

The pyramid complex gives the builders the chance to spread weight of the layer above across a better distance.

I think we shared info even back then or the main few cultures that started out on earth knew of the design so in turn we all know it. Kinda like hidden architectural knowledge instilled in our subconscious mind by our creators.

Wow, that's really something. I had no idea there were moat-ringed burial mounds in Japan. Are they all as late as this (250+ AD)? Do you know when they started this practice?



The village of Asuka is also known to be an ancient land with historical interest. It has its origins in the Tumulus Period (250-552 AD), also called Kofun jidai, which means Old Mound period. This era of Japanese history is characterised by a particular type of burial mound that was popular at the time; specifically key shaped earthen mounds surrounded by moats. However, the newly-discovered step pyramid is quite different to those that have already been found.

I wonder too if they weren't meant to recreate the natural environment- man made mountains, if you like?

Such a shame a lot of that seafood and that fertile land you mention has been irradiated and contaminated with nuclear waste for generations to come...and ongoing too.

Is there any info on who the burial tomb was for? I see they found a stone box, and have assumed it was a tomb, but it could have been to house something valuable instead of a dead body?

Actually, that's not so.

As evidenced by the large earthen mounds everywhere on Earth, supposedly built before the pyramid age.

A pyramid IS a highly technological structure, incorporating advanced construction and mathematical expertise.

A mound is a pile of stones, topped with earth....much easier, and many have been built to quite a height...higher than this pyramid apparently.

If you explain the existence of similar pyramids being built by supposedly separate people who didn't have contact to share 'pyramid ideas and techniques', because it's easier to build than a simple mound...you're wrong.

That isn't where most of the best land and fishing is fortunately.

Yes there was speculation on who it might have been in both articles.
