History

According to the old record of China, there is a country called “Yamataikoku” in Japan in the 3rd century and the empress Himiko ruled the country.

Kunakoku is ruled by the king Himikoko and was always in fight with the Yamataikoku.

According to the explanation board of the Himiko Shrine, the king Himikoko has the relation ship with the God “Hoori” which is worshiped at Kagoshima Jingu Shrine.

 

There are 2 theories regarding the place of Yamataikoku.

But nobody knows the exact place.

Personally I would be happy if Yamataikoku was located in Kagoshima, but strangely enought Himiko Shrine was built at this place even though no historical evidence was found.
