Furuichi kofungun (古市古墳群) is a group of one hundred and twenty-three kofun or tumuli in Fujiidera, Osaka Prefecture, Japan. Thirty-one of the burial mounds are keyhole-shaped, thirty round, forty-eight rectangular, and a further fourteen are of indeterminate shape.[1] In 2010 the Furuichi kofungun cluster of tumuli, along with those of Mozu kofungun, were proposed for inscription on the UNESCO World Heritage List.[2]
