Warabite Sword, Excavated at Moizari No. 11 Tumulus, Eniwa-shi, Hokkaido, Satsumon period, 8th century

In Hokkaido, several burial mounds from the 8th–9th century contain iron artifacts whose shapes echo artifacts used on Japan’s main island, such as a distinctively shaped sword with a spiraled pommel reminiscent of a fiddlehead fern. Hokkaido’s burial mounds have their roots in practices from the epi-Jomon period (ca. 3rd century BC–ca. 7th century AD), but show influence from cultural developments in the northern parts of Japan’s main island during the Kofun period (ca. 3rd century–ca. 7th century).
