During the Yayoi Period (300 BC to 300 AD), the riceculture was imported into Japan around 100 BC. With the introduction ofagriculture, social classes started to evolve, and parts of the countrybegan to unite under powerful land owners. Chinese travellers duringthe Han and Wei dynasties reported that a queen called Himiko (orPimiku) reigned over Japan at that time. The Yayoi period brought alsothe introduction of iron and other modern ideas from Korea into Japan.Again, its pottery gave the period its name.
The Theory is this:
Some Japanese anthropologist believe that the YAYOI period were the Hmong people of the Yangtze river.
So their theory is that the Hmong fought against the Yellow Emperor. With their lost, the Hmong settled into the Yangzte river. And some Hmong fled on a boat to Kyushu island, and introduced rice culture and became apart of the Yayoi Period.
