 Himiko, The Queen Of  Yamataikoku, 卑弥呼、邪馬台国


Himiko was the Queen of Yamataikoku(one of the provinces in ancient Japan) in the 3rd century.

Chinese history books wrote about her country in detail.


2nd-century Japan was in the state of war.  It was in the reign of Himiko when the war came to an end.


She is said to have been a female prophet to communicate with God.


According to an ancient Chinese history book, she was the political religious authority of Yamataikoku. However, his brother administrated the country on behalf of her.

There have been controversies about the location of Yamataikoku.


There are two theories about it. One is the north-Kyushu region theory and the other is the Kinki region theory. 


Today the latter is supported by many scholars. This is because Makimuku relics on the base of Mt. MIwa has been excavated.

Many earth ware have been excuvated in the ruins. The archeological studies have shown that there were large wooden structures. In addition, the location is surrounded by many burial mounds.


The Kinki region theory seems more convincing enough to prove the establishment of the Yamato regime after that.

Welcome to my homepage.
For me, meeting with people is a gift from God.
A new encounter inspires me and enriches my heart.
People sometimes ask me unexpected questions I can't answer on the spot.
New encounters are, in a sense, a kind of continuation of embarrassment and bewilderment.
As a tour guide, going around with people is like an adventurous journey.
Those who I met stay in my heart with good memories.But I also would like to stay in your heart.
Yes, every encounter, solo or group, is a glow of jewels.
I taught at senior high school. Good teachers are not always a good scholar, one time a comedian, another time a hero, like a spiderman.
I'm an expert in history, culture, and religion.
Why is Japan so mysterious?
My tour is full of smile, humor, laughter, and lectures.
I'm also a lover of music and a chi exercise instructor.
Why don't you try chi exercise with me? read more
