These are fourteen bronze swords found at the Kotsuro archeological site close to Keinomatsubara(Pine Grove), where numerous dotaku s have been discovered. Buried with many dotakus close to the coast overlooking the Harimanada Sea. These beautiful bronze swords evoke images of the Umi-no-tami engaged in bronze-ware rituals in the Yayoi period. A stone monument stands on the archeological site.
