The Asuka Period covers about 100 years from the end of 6th century until the the Nara Period(710) starts. The Asuka Period saw Japan emerge from the Tumulus Period with the introduction of Buddhism into Japan from China and Korea.
Asuka Temple was the first Temple to be founded in Japan. The famous "Asuka Daibutsu" (Shakanyorai) is said to have been made by Toribusshi in Chinese style. Various influences from East Asia are represented in the Asuka Daibutsu. It resembles Shaka in Horyuji Temple.
Ishibutai is Japan's best example of a rectangular tumulus and is famous for its huge exposed stone chamber. As the surface of the roof is large and smooth, since old times it has been called a stone stage. Accordingly, the Tumulus is believed to have been built at the beginning of the 7th century. This area is a national Park.
As for Tachibana Temple, the inner gate, pagoda, main hall and lecture hall are located in a line along the east-west axis, like in the Shitennoji Temple style in Osaka. In the precinct is a strange two-faced stone. Have you ever heard of a two faced stone ?
Takamatsuzuka Tomb is a round tumulus with a diameter of 23 meters. A horizontal hole-style stone chamber with colored murals was discovered in 1972. Genbu ( black turtle), tiger, dragon, women, the sun and the moon are displayed on the wall.
