"Hayato History and Folklore Museum" is located in the precincts of Kagoshima Jingu Shrine.
"Hayato History and Folklore Museum" exhibits materials related to Kagoshima Jingu Shrine and the Hayato area.

As soon as you enter the Hayato History and Folklore Museum, you will see a replica of Hayato's shield.
Hayato is the name of a group that existed in ancient Japan from southern to western Kyushu.
From the 5th to the 7th century, the Yamato kingship of the time repeatedly engaged in wars of aggression, using the discriminatory name "Kumaso" for "Hayato".
In the war known as "Hayato's Rebellion" in 720, the Yamato kingship was victorious.
After this war, some Hayato people were forcibly taken to Kyoto.
In Kyoto, the people of Hayato performed a dance as a sign of obedience to the Yamato kingship.
Hayato's shield" was used for this dance.
