Short summary
Bidirectional muographic measurements were taken at an ancient burial mound built in the beginning of the 6th century which later collapsed after a landslide caused by the 1596 Fushimi earthquake, one of the largest earthquakes over the last few centuries in Japan. The result indicated large-scale vertical cracks at the top of the mound which caused its collapse, and thus an intrinsic problem was suggested about the stability of the basic foundation of the mound before this earthquake.
