7th century Gose-shi. Kose, Midoro
There are two tumuli in the same neighborhood which jointly bear the name "Midoro Kofun. " In one of them there is, in addition to a stone coffin in the burial chamber proper, a second stone coffin in the entrance passageway. The latter is ornamented with a lotus flower design. Sixty meters to the north of this tomb is the other Midoro Kofun tumulus. which has a stately burial chamber likewise entered from the side. One theory has it that these two tumuli correspond to the "Imaki no narabihaka" (Imaki paired tombs) mentioned in the .Nihon shoki as having been built by Soga-no-Emishi and his son Iruka.
