Haniwa Garden

Haniwa Garden, located in Heiwadai Park, features a collection of more than 400 replica haniwa (burial statues) depicting everything from boats and buildings to warriors and animals. Historically, the clay statues were used as a tribute to the dead and placed around burial mounds. Visitors to the garden can also explore other parts of the park, which was built in 1940 to commemorate the anniversary of the ascension of Japan’s legendary first emperor, Jimmu.
