Shimeigatake Sutra Mound is located in a mountainous area in eastern Kyoto. It was accidentally discovered in 1907 during a forestry operation. Among the excavated objects, gilt-bronze plaques bear an inscription that reads the year "1121." They also bear names of Buddhist statues and extracts from Buddhist scriptures, such as the Heart Sutra and the Lotus Sutra, engraved in a special type of font that only shows the outlines of the characters.
