One of the world’s largest tombs is a keyhole-shaped forest

From the perspective of those on the ground, one of the world’s largest graves appears to be an expansive, natural respite nestled in the bustling urban core of Japan’s Sakai City. When viewed from above, however, the massive forest becomes a green keyhole surrounded by three moats in the shape of a doorway.This is Japan’s Daisen Kofun, an ancient burial mound shrouded in mystery, massive in scale, and surprisingly little-known to the rest of the world.
