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?
