      "A rare visit by archaeologists to a fifth-century imperial tomb
      offers hope that other closely guarded graves in Japan might soon be
      open to independent study.

      This month a group of 16 experts led by the Japanese Archaeological
      Association released results from their February visit inside Gosashi
      tomb.

      a royal tomb outside of an official excavation led by Japan's Imperial
      Household Agency."
