Ancient Japan

Ancient Japan Treasure Chest

Ancient Japan, known as the The Kofun period, began around 250 AD, and is named after the large tumulus burial mounds called kofun (from Sino-Japanese "ancient grave") that started appearing around that time. The Kofun period saw the establishment of strong military states, each concentrated around powerful clans (or zoku). During this time, the Japanese also developed a central administration and an imperial court system, based upon the Chinese model, with its society being organized into various occupation groups.
