Kotsuro Swords

Kotsuro Swords (Collections of the National Museum of Japanese History and Hyogo Prefectural Museum of Archeology)
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.
