Ancient stone wonders and megaliths of Japan

The strange, unexplained, and out of place features of Japan that do not fit into the common story of ancient Japanese history.



Asuka, Japan - The Masuda Iwafune stone is located near the top of a hill just a few hundred meters west of Okadera Station. The ridge line parallels the two square holes.







The megalithic stone walls outside of Osaka Castle, Japan


















The Ishi-no-Hōden (石の宝殿) monolith in Hyōgo Prefecture, Japan is a mysterious single stone monolith cut out from the surrounding rock and is known as one of the three greatest enigmas in Japan. Nothing about the ancient stone is clear, and even when it first appeared in 8th century literature the original builders and it's purpose were unknown. Today it is worshipped as a shrine of the Ōshiko Jinja Shinto.

This place is closed to the public and nobody really knows who built the monument. Very ancient.
