Walking to a burial mound in Hiroshima

This is a Japanese 'kofun', meaning burial mound. In older times, when people were buried here, especially leaders. I had heard about the Kofun period and was curious about what it looked like. I walked there from the train station, but it was much more beautiful than I imagined. (Surprisingly, I thought about other ancient people in pyramids because they seemed similar.)
