Women used to have political power in Japan

Gender equality is ongoing. However, for some reason, I have heard that men always have a dominant social structure in humankind, and that no country has any exception.

It seems that women had once political power in Japan. I once mentioned Himiko, the empress of the 3rd to 4th centuries.

There were many women gods at the ancient time. The representative is Amaterasu Omikami.

A statue of her is at Amanoiwato Shrine in Miyazaki Prefecture.

Whether or not God can appear, whether or not she is a human-like appears, are undesolved subject.

Anyway, the atmosphere of the power spot is strong, so if you have a chance, please visit.|en)
