A piled stone tomb at Seokchong-dong with a circular inner structure with square stone fence. Heavy destruction of the tomb made it difficult to reconstruct its original appearance. The tomb was destroyed in antiquity and houses were built over the site. Beneath the stone pile around the circle were found two stone piled pit tombs and three stone coffins, indicating that the piled stone tomb was constructed in the strata above these coffins. It is intereresting to note that there are two-stepped tombs in Japan with the upper step circular and flat and the lower step square and flat. Reconstructed dimensions: inner circle 11.4m and the square sides 16m.
