Kyoto Meiji 1890s Unknown
Mimizuka (耳塚, Mound of Ears) in Kyoto. The monument is dedicated to the noses that were sliced off at least 38,000 killed Korean soldiers and civilians, and Chinese troops, during the invasions of Korea from 1592 to 1598 by Toyotomi Hideyoshi (1536/1537 –1598). It was originally known as hanazuka (鼻塚, Mound of Noses). The monument still exists but is hardly known among Japanese.
