The Hata clan (秦氏) was an immigrant clan active in Japan since the Kofun period, according to the epic history Nihonshoki.

Hata is the Japanese reading of the Chinese (state and dynasty) name 秦 given to the Qin Dynasty (the real family name was Ying), and given to their descendants established in Japan. The Nihonshoki presents the Hata as a clan or house, and not as a tribe; also only the members of the head family had the right to use the name of Hata.

The Hata can be compared to other families who came from the continent during the Kofun period: the descendants of the Chinese Han Dynasty, by Prince Achi no Omi, ancestor of the Yamato no Aya clan, the Sakanoue clan, the Tamura clan, the Harada and the Akizuki clan; also, the descendants of the Chinese Cao Wei Dynasty by the Takamuko clan. The descendants of Baekje Paekche (Kudara in Japanese) who sought refuge in Japan, for example the Yamato no Fubito (also called Yamato no Fubito- 和史 later given a new title, Takano no Asomi- 高野朝臣), Kudara no Konikishi clan, and the Sue clan.

The Hata are mentioned by name more often than almost any other immigrant clan in the Nihonshoki, one of Heian-period Japan's epics, combining mythology and history.

The first leader of the Hata to arrive in Japan, Uzumasa-no-Kimi-Sukune, arrived during the reign of Emperor Chūai, in the 2nd century CE. According to the epic, he and his followers were greeted warmly, and Uzumasa was granted a high government position.

Roughly one hundred years later, during the reign of Emperor Ōjin, a Hata prince called Yuzuki no Kimi visited Japan from the Kingdom of Baekje in Korea. He said he had come from Baekje, and he wanted to emigrate to Japan, but that Silla would not permit him to do so.

... They are said to have aided in the establishment of Heian-kyō (modern-day Kyoto), and of many Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples, including
Fushimi Inari Taisha, Matsunoo Taisha, and Kōryū-ji.

... In addition, many towns in Japan are named after the clan, such as Ohata, Yahata, and Hatano. The population of Neyagawa in Osaka Prefecture includes a number of people who claim descent from the Hata.

... The notion that the Hata clan were among the Lost Tribes of Israel, though far from widely accepted or even seriously considered in formal scholarship, is central to the beliefs of several Japanese New Religions...

Shinra, the Japanese version of Silla, the Korean Kingdom.

新羅神社 Shinra Jinja in Fukui

is believed to enshrine the tutelary deity of immigrants from ancient Korean Shinra (or Shiragi, 新羅) around the 4-7 century.
Immigrants from ancient Korean were employed as technical specialists of sericulture, fabric, papermaking, ironmaking and blacksmith, which are traditional handicrafts descended from generation to generation in the Hokuriku district.

(Uzumasa no Kijima Jinja)
also called
Kaiko no yashiro (蚕ノ社) - Silkworm Shrine
and the Korean connection to the Hata clan (秦氏).
The Konoshima shrine explains the three pillars represent
faith, hope and charity.

The stone piles under the two three-pillar Torii at Wadatsumi Jinja are believed as the graves of deities - one is Azumi-no-Isora (安曇磯良, probably same deity as Ugayafukiaezu-no-mikoto (鵜茅葺不合命)) and the other one is
Toyotamahiko-no-mikoto (豊玉彦尊, = Wadatsumi-no-kami (綿津見神 or 海神)). It seems only male deities who have Wadatsumi's blood in their veins are enshrined in this style to be immersed into water.

According to this rule, the stone piles under the three-pillar Torii at Konoshima Jinjya must be the grave of deity who is the offspring of Wadatsumi. Among the enshrined deities at Konoshima Jinjya, there is only one deity who is the offspring of Wadatsumi. His name is Ugayafukiaezu-no-mikoto, who is the grandson of Wadatsumi and the father of Emperor Jinmu (神武天皇).

Mototadasu no ike 元糺の池
Mototadasu-no-ike pond"

"Moto" means "original" and "tadasu" means "repent one's sin".
It is said that this pond is considered as the original place of River Mitarashi (御手洗川) in Tadasu-no-mori forest (糺の森) at Shimogamo Jinja and the name was transferred to the forest at Shimogamo, suggesting a special relation between Hata-uji and Kamo-uji.
Consistently, the crests of Kamo Jinja, Konoshima Jinja and Matsuo Taisha are all Futaba Aoi.

On the midsummer day (doyoo no ushi no hi 土用の丑の日), a baptism-like ritual is held at River Mitarashi (御手洗川) in the forest Tadasu-no-mori (糺の森) at Shimogamo Jinjaa.
On the same day, the same ritual is held at Mototadasu-no-ike pond (元糺の池)

"Prince Troy and his wife and children"
made in Belgium and was imported to Japan in the 16 century.

Kyoto Gion Festival (祇園祭) is coming this July 17th.
Yamahoko (山鉾, floats) will be decorated by gorgeous tapestries. If you are there, you will be surprised to see most tapestries are not traditional Japanese ones and some are European, Islamic and even Judaism arts.
Here is the example, Kankoboko (函谷鉾)'s tapestry made in Belgium in the 16 century - "Rebecca giving water to Isaac", a famous scene from Hebrew Bible.

We can trace the ancestry of Japanese (or at least the Royal Family which have continued for 2672 years) into people from the ancient Israel, 10 Lost Tribes.
