OSAKA -- Remains of an imperial structure believed to have been built in the mid-7th century have been found during an archaeological dig on the grounds of a hospital here, the Osaka City Cultural Properties Association has announced.

The ruins are said to have been part of an administrative wing of Naniwa Palace built by Emperor Kotoku (596-654) after the Taika Reforms in 645, which then burned down during the reign of Emperor Temmu (631-686). It is located approximately 300 meters west of what used to be the Chodo-in ceremonial hall, and is around 100 meters west of what was previously believed to be the westernmost edge of the palace.

An official for the Osaka City Cultural Properties Association says the latest findings raise the possibility that the palace grounds may extend further west than originally believed.

In August, the association began surveys of an approximately 1,900-square-meter area on the grounds of Osaka National Hospital, which is rebuilding some of its facilities. Ruins of a hottatebashira building -- or a dug-standing pillar building -- stretching 16 meters, as well as the remains of a large wall at least 41 meters long had been found on the site thus far.

The buildings and walls have been positioned in an orderly fashion facing the same direction, and are believed to be part of an administrative wing in the western part of the palace. A large area of land created by filling in a valley has been found nearby, from where earthenware vessels from before the mid-7th century have been recovered.

An on-site briefing session will be held on Dec. 1 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. For more information, contact the Osaka City Cultural Properties Association's Naniwa Palace Survey Office at 06-6943-6836. (Japanese only)

大阪・難波宮:従来想定より広かった 新たな建物跡発見

 大阪市中央区の大阪医療センター敷地内の発掘調査で、大化の改新(645年)後に孝徳天皇らが造営し、 天武天皇時代に火災で焼失したとされる「前期難波宮(なにわのみや)」(7世紀中ごろ〜後半)の役所の一部とみられる建物跡が見つかり、22日、大阪文化 財研究所が発表した。

 建物跡が見つかったのは、朝廷の公式行事や政務を行った「朝堂院(ちょうどういん)」の西約300メー トルで、これまで宮の西端と考えられてきた場所からさらに西へ約100メートル離れた地点。そのため、同研究所は「宮殿の範囲が従来の想定より西へ広がる 可能性が出てきた」としている。

 医療センターの建て替えなどに伴い、同研究所が今年8月から約1900平方メートルを調査していた。調 査地からは、東西16メートルの掘っ立て柱建物跡のほか、建物に伴う大型の塀跡(東西41メートル以上)を確認。建物や塀は方角をそろえて規則的に配置さ れており、宮の西に広がる役所群「西方官衙(せいほうかんが)」の一角とみられる。近くでは谷を埋め立てた大規模な整地跡も見つかり、整地土には7世紀中 ごろ以前の土器が多数含まれていた。

 現地説明会は、12月1日午後1時半〜同3時半。少雨決行。問い合わせは、同研究所難波宮調査事務所(06・6943・6836)。【林由紀子】
