the change of styles of Kofun in the Kofun period

Though many large keyhole-shaped Kofun, ancient burial mound, had been built in the Kibi area, today's Okayama and Hiroshima, such Kofun were no longer built from the late 5th century. On the other hand, keyhole-shaped Kofun were often still built in the Kinki, around today's Kyoto area in those days. This change interpreted to that powerful families in the Kibi area obeyed the Yamato Imperial Court.

But then, a vast amount of small Kofun were built in those days. These small Kofun are called “clustered tumuli” and these were Kofun for powerful farmers. It means that the Yamato Imperial Court integrated powerful farmers into their system to directly control them.

※the Kofun period ranged  from the later third century to the seventh century.
