What is Mahoroba USA?
Mahoroba is an ancient Japanese word describing a far-off land full of bliss and peace. It is roughly comparable to the western concepts of a Utopia, a place surrounded by mountains full of harmony and quiet.

Mahoroba is now written only in hiragana as ����. The origins of the word are not clear; it is described in a poem in the ancient Kojiki (�事記) as being the perfect place in Yamato.
Kojiki (�事記?, "Record of Ancient Matters") is the oldest extant chronicle in Japan, dating from the early 8th century (711-2) and composed by Ō no Yasumaro at the request of Empress Gemmei. 

The Kojiki is a collection of myths concerning the origin of the four home islands of Japan, and the Kami. Along with the Nihon Shoki, the myths contained in the Kojiki are part of the inspiration behind Shinto practices and myths, including the misogi purification ritual.
