Under the famous "Hashi Haka" (*), the tomb of the chopsticks, so many mysteries have been buried, that opening and studying it might actually destabilize the political asset of Japan, or at least, rewrite most of its early history.


This is the reason why this tomb will never be opened, at least, not in the near future. While the tombs where members of the Yamato family are buried are considered private property of the Emperor, and trespassing their borders is equivalent to violate a private house, this tomb officially belongs to a aunt of an Emperor, which might not have been strictly part of the immediate emperor's family and ancestry. But even if he position of this person in the royal family is unclear, too many secrets are buried under this tomb for it to be opened and investigated lightly.

And that's why it intrigues me.
