Standing Stones in Kyūshū.

Most splendid standing stones in Japan. 9 stones, maybe the survivors of 5 pairs, are standing at the foot of Mt. Komekami-yama in which lie some outcrops of pillar stones, ancient people seemed to make a new artificial ritual place at the foot of the mountain. 

In 1991, 19 pillar stones were dug out from rice fields near by and then stood beside the original stones.
