Mirrors (Triangular with Mythical Animals) in Okutsu Shrine (Senbiki-cho)

The surroundings of Okutsu Shrine in Senbiki include an ancient mound built in the middle of the 4th century which has a diameter of 25 m and a height of 3.3 m. In addition to three ancient mirrors (triangular decorated with mythical animals) (designated as a Prefectural Cultural Asset in 1977), pottery from the middle of the Yayoi period and Haji pottery have been unearthed. The triangular mythical animal mirrors have their name due to the fact that there is an engraved relief of gods in the form of animals encircling the inner side of the holding knob.
