The queendom of Queen Himiko of the third century problem that becomes the national topic now. After all the subject is a problem of the location of queendom of Queen Himiko of the third century, and there are Kyushu opinion / Kinki opinion and moving from Kyushu to Kinki. The reason is because decisive evidence can lack in what do not watch an end at which opinion while having the history of the study to pass over those opinions than 280 years either. Yoshinogari site in the Kyushu opinion and Makimuku site in the Kinki opinion have important significance for each argument when I look back on history of slightly detailed study. However, for the candidate place of the grave of Himiko, the existence of Hashihaka tumulus in the Kinki opinion will work more profitably. In addition, it rises in the viewpoint of the northeast Asian history, and it may be said that that I elucidate the local actual situation of Japanese Islands each place is demanded most now.
