Iron Adze, Found at Iwahana Futagoyama Tumulus, Gunma, Kofun period, 5th century

Agricultural productivity increased considerably as farming tools grew more sophisticated during the Kofun period (ca. 3rd century–ca. 7th century). A number of these tools originated in the southern part of the Korean Peninsula, where iron replaced wood as the main source material. This section features agricultural tools that were brought to the Japanese archipelago from the Korean Peninsula.
