Here is a bit about Naoshi Onodera who staking claim to be the True Emperor:
Naoshi Onodera holding what he claims is an 8000 year old Sumerian object, the Japanese imperial “Jewel.”
Naoshi Onodera claims he is the legal and rightful emperor of Japan and that Emperor Akihito is descended from a group of illegitimate pretenders who were put up as puppet rulers by foreign cabalists who use the Satanic star as their symbol.
He says the sitting emperor is using fake replicas of the three ancient imperial treasures used to justify his position on the throne.
Now these are the three objects that I found, and what they look like, as they were presented by the current Emperor. Which Onodera claims are fakes.
The Sword, Kusanagi no Tsurugi (草薙劍)
Found in: Atsuta Jingu, Nagoya; Represents: Valor
The sacred sword was discovered by Susanoo, the God of the Oceans and brother of Amaterasu, in one of the tails of an eight headed dragon that he had killed. In the fourth tail, he discovered a great sword inside the body of the serpent which he called Ame-no-Murakumo-no-Tsurugi, which he presented to the goddess Amaterasu to settle an old grievance.
The Jewel, Yasakani no Magatama (八尺瓊曲玉)
Found in: Imperial Palace, Tokyo; Represents: Benevolence
Like the mirror, the jewel was hung to lure Amaterasu out of her cave when the earth became shrouded in darkness. It is believed to be a necklace composed of jade magatama stones.
The Mirror, Yata no Kagami (八咫鏡)
Found in: Ise Jingu, Mie; Represents: Wisdom
As discussed in a previous post about Japanese mythology, the sacred mirror was used to lure Amaterasu, the Sun Goddess, out of a cave where she had withdrawn after her brother Susanoo had misbehaved himself.
Apparently this man is more then willing to get these artifacts which are currently in his possession to show proof of who he is to be investigated by scholars, to be verified. Which I think will NOT happen.
In any case, Onodera is undeniably in possession of some extremely unique and historically valuable artifacts. The “Jewel” he holds above has an eight petalled flower carved on it. Onodera says this object has been in his family for 8,000 years and has its origins in ancient Sumer. The flower is the oldest known example of the eight pointed star or the seal of the prophets, he says.
The other object he showed was the “sword.”
The sword has an inscription on it saying it belongs to a king. Apart from holding what he claims are three treasures of the Japanese Imperial throne, Onodera had many other interesting items such as this item.
Tibetan Kings used this to sacrifice virgins until Tibet was conquered by China a thousand years ago and the Chinese emperors put an end to the practice, he says. To confirm this Onodera produced what he claims is the original stone tablet of the 10 commandments.
He says it was given to his ancestor by “celestial beings.” Onodera says all of the items in his possession are available for expert scrutiny so long as he and his staff are able to monitor the objects at all times.
Needless to say, Onodera also has complex genealogical tables, documents and other evidence to back his claim to being the heir of the oldest known, still extant, royal lineage on earth.
The other point to be made about Onodera’s claims is that many of Japan’s Yakuza gangs and right wing organizations support him. Onodera has been under the protection of the Nichiren Buddhist sect and has kept his identity, he claims, secret until now. According to Onodera, when foreign armies invaded Japan in the 1850’s and 1860’s, they found the Japanese government owned 3/4ths of the world’s known supply of silver. In order to get their hands on it, they supplied an impoverished Northern lineage with rifles that could shoot 400 meters while they sold the richer Southern “legitimate” lineage rifles that could only shoot 100 meters. The symbol of the Northern Army’s flag was a 5-pointed star, the symbol of Lucifer, also known as Satan. The Southerners were massacred and foreign banking families got their hands on some of the treasure. Ever since then, he claims, Japan has been run by these puppets of foreign financiers. Onodera also makes a more startling claim. He says his family is directly descended from the biblical Abraham. His claims are backed up by the fact that the family tree of Abraham corresponds exactly with the family tree in the Japanese foundation myths.
