黒岩横穴墓群


−県指定 史跡−
黒岩横穴墓群は、大正14年に県指定の史跡となった横穴墓群である。古墳時代後期〜終末期に造られたと考えられるが詳細は不明である。吉見丘陵の北東部 に位置する八丁湖に隣接しており、その範囲は、百穴谷・首切り谷・地獄谷・神代谷などに分布していると言われる。この横穴墓群を「十六穴」と呼ぶこともあ るが、これは、明治10年に地元の有志によって16基の横穴墓が発見・掘削されたことに由来する。現在では、30数基の横穴の存在が確認されているが、こ の一体の斜面には多数の横穴墓が埋蔵しており、国指定史跡である吉見百穴よりも大規模で良好に保存されていると云われている。その総数は500基以上と推 定される。

More About Japan

The eight islands of Japan sprang into existence through Divine Intervention.The first two gods who came into existence were Izanagi no Mikoto and Izanami no Mikoto, the Exalted Male and Exalted Female. It was their job to make the land for people to live on.They went to the bridge between heaven and earth and, using a jewel-encrusted halberd, Izanagi and Izanami churned up the sea into a frothy foam. As salty drips of water fell from the tip of the halberd the first island was formed. Its name was Onogoro.So far, so good. But when Izanagi and Izanami first met on their island, Izanami spoke to Isanagi without being spoken to first. Since she was the female, and this was improper, their first union created badly-formed offspring who were sent off into the sea in boats.The next time they met, Izanagi was sure to speak first, ensuring the proper rules were followed, and this time they produced eight children, which became the islands of Japan.I'm sure you did not fail to miss the significance of this myth for the establishment of Japanese formal society.At present, Japan is the financial capital of Asia. It has the second largest economy in the world and the largest metropolitan area (Tokyo.)Technically there are three thousand islands making up the Japanese archipelago. Izanagi and Izanami must have been busy little devils with their jewelled halberd...Japan's culture is highly technical and organized. Everything sparkles and swooshes on silent, miniaturized mechanisms.They're a world leader in robotics, and the Japanese have the longest life-expectancy on earth.Text by Steve Smith.
