What may be the remains of Queen Himiko’s palace have been found in Nara, Japan.

This photo taken Nov. 5, 2009, shows remains of a building structure (inside white borders at bottom) dating back to the early third century in western Japan’s Nara Prefecture which could be a palace of legendary Japanese ruler Queen Himiko. The Hashihaka ancient burial mound, believed by some archaeologists to be the queen’s tomb, is seen in the upper part of the photo.
