About Himiko, who was a monarch and shaman in the Yayoi period

Later Han Dynasty perished in 220. After that the era of three kingdoms, Gi, Go, Shu, started.

According to the chapter on Japan in the Book of Gi, many battles between Japan's provinces occurred from the late 2nd century. Although Japanese people became tired of wars, the battles continued. Finally, many provinces cooperated and made Himiko a monarch. After that, the battles ceased and a united kingdom of 30 provinces centering around Yamataikoku was born.

Himiko sent an envoy to the Emperor of Gi in 239 AD and she was given an honorific title; 親魏倭王 which means “King of Japan which is a friend of Gi”. She was also given many precious bronze mirrors. It is said that Himiko was a gifted shaman; therefore she governed Yamataikoku by that ability.

 

the Yayoi period ranged from around 400 B.C. to around 300 A.D.
