Japanese Magic mirrors

Reaction score
Is there any interest in magic mirrors, the mirrors that create patterns on the back as light reflects off of the front. It is considered that it was owned by Himiko, a shaman queen who ruled the kingdom of Yamatai in the 3rd century AD.
Queen Himiko is not actually mentioned in Japanese sources - her story is only known through a Chinese historical text written in the late third century, as source says.
What is going on with this topic? Is it forgotten by Japanese people?
