In ancient Japan, mirrors were especially revered as rare and mysterious
objects. In 1339, Chikafusa Kitabatake wrote (in the Jinno Shotoki) that they
were seen as a “source of honesty” because they reflect “everything good and
bad, right and wrong… without fail.” In fact, one of Japan’s three most
important imperial treasures is a sacred mirror called Yata-no-Kagami.
