YesAsia Editorial Description

Based on the classic best-selling novel by Miyazaki Kohei, Maboroshi no Yamataikoku (a.k.a. Where the Legend Lives) revolves around the search for Yamataikoku, an ancient nation of the Yayoi period whose historical location remains unknown today. A gentle, moving feature from hit-making director Tsutsumi Yukihiko (20th Century Boys), the film stars Japanese Cinema favorite Takenaka Naoto as a blind retired man obsessed with finding Yamataikoku. His quest takes him and his wife, played by acclaimed actress Yoshinaga Sayuri (Kabei - Our Mother), on a hearty journey through the country. Maboroshi no Yamataikoku's supporting cast includes Kubozuka Yosuke, Kazama Toru, Yo Kimiko, and Osugi Ren.

[解説]
「あなたと過ごした毎日は、本当に幸せだった」/宮?ア和子は、昭和40年代に全国に邪馬台国ブームを起した盲目の文学者・宮?ア康平の妻である。康平と過ごした日々は、周囲からは辛いと思われていたかも知れない。だが、和子はその執念を守り、いっしょに育てていった。宮?ア康平。その名は島原の人間なら知らないものはいない。長崎県・島原鉄道の元役員であり、素人離れした郷土史研究家、文学家、また「島原の子守唄」などの詩作者でもあった。さだまさしの「関白宣言」に、影響を与えた人物ともいわれる。しかし、学者というよりも独断的な言動や、突飛な行動から破天荒な男として名が通っていた。和子は、福岡の放送局で康平と出会い、変わり者といわれてはいても、どこか憎めない人物像に誘われるまま、島原へ向かい康平の手伝いをするようになる。昭和32年、災害の際に土器の破片を見つけたことを機に、康平の郷土愛は、「邪馬台国」探求の熱になる。和子は、目の見えない康平に古代の史書・魏志倭人伝、日本書紀、古事記などを読み聞かせ、九州各地に康平の目となり、杖となり、共同で「まぼろしの邪馬台国」を著した。この本はベストセラーとなり、後年、第一回吉川英治文化賞を受賞する。
