Extraits du dossier « Okinoshima Island and Related Sites in Munakata Region » qui figure sur la Liste indicative du Japon pour une éventuelle inscription sur la Liste du patrimoine mondial de l’Unesco :

« This property comprises two important parts: one is Okinoshima, an island off the northwestern coast of Kyûshû, where from the fourth to the tenth centuries national religious rituals were conducted to supplicate the gods for the safety of the oceangoing vessels that served as Japan’s link to the East Asian mainland, and the other is archaeological sites related to the powerful Munakata clan, local rulers in ancient times who were also involved in priestly and ritual functions… »

« … For about six hundred years, beginning in the mid-fourth century, rituals were continued without interruption. Archaeological surveys have thus far identified twenty-three sites with the remains of ritual structures, and discovered a transition from cliff top ritual sites to sites in caves or beneath rocky outcroppings, and then into the open air. Some 80,000 artifacts used as ritual offerings have been discovered, including gold rings and openwork metal equestrian ornaments manufactured in the Korean kingdom of Silla and fragments of a cut glass vessel from as far away as the Middle East. These rituals at Okinoshima were presided over by the Munakata clan, who ruled the fisher folks of the region from a stronghold in what is now the city of Munakata, and whose burial ground is believed to be the Tsuyazaki tumulus complex. Among these tumuli is the Miyajidake Kofun, from which equestrian ornaments and a crown that have been designated National Treasures were excavated ».
