Gold Earrings, Found at Tamashima Tumulus or Handa Miyanoue Tumulus, Saga, Kofun period, 6th century

During the Kofun period (ca. 3rd century–ca. 7th century), an influx of culture from continental Asia brought drastic changes to the clothing and ornaments worn by Japanese people. This section sheds light on articles of attire, such as metal shoes and earrings, that significantly changed shape in the mid- to late Kofun period, while also introducing Japanese rulers who were growing more active in the East Asian political sphere.
