Otsuka Kofun 大塚古墳 is the town’s main attraction, a 1500-year-old burial mound that can only be viewed twice a year. There is a museum adjacent to the mound which has a full-size replica of the tomb and instructional video, however most displays are written in Japanese.  From JR Keisen Station, walk about five minutes up the street and the kofun is on your left. Climb the small hill and the museum is below, within the park. 376 Jumei, Kamashi-gun, Keisen-machi. 9am-4:30pm Tue-Sun • 0948-65-2900
