From the comments

Photos certainly must exist!

> Since 690, the presentation of these items to the Emperor by the priests at the shrine are a central part of the imperial enthronement ceremony. This ceremony is not public, and these items are by tradition only seen by the emperor and certain priests. Because of this, no known photographs or drawings exist. <

I would bet pretty penny that the US occupational troops in 1945-47 did demand visual verification and took photos of the regalia when they worked towards pacification of Japan and imposition of the new constitution, which seriously curbed the imperial family and powers. Obviously the USA had to make sure they were not cheated and the treasures were still there and not smuggled abroad for a claimant to incite rebellion later on, etc.

Any photos made by a US serviceman in line of duty would be in the public domain. 82.131.210.163 (talk) 17:45, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

America wanted to make peace with Japan, not to desecrate their most important national tresure. They even permitted the Emperor to keep his throne to facilitate the process of peace. Japan had surely lost the war, but most Japs were eager to immolate themselves for the glory of their Emperor, so it wouldn't be a smart diplomatic decision to send Mr.John Serviceman to make photos of forbidden holy Emperor-only artifacts in the immediate aftermath of the war. But, yeah, they still could have send Superman... --151.51.60.165 (talk) 11:55, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

We could tell you, but then we would have to remove your will to intentionally harm other beings.

Oh come on we weren't the ones throwing babies onto bayonets in WWII, or freezing people's arms with liquid nitrogen and then hitting them with a hammer.

You Japanese people have been pretty good at suppressing your baser, violent urges for a while, but trust me, they will come to a head again.

I'm not out to willfully profane or destroy anything or anyone.

If there is no other way of finding out, i hope i at least piqued His Imperial Highnesses' scientific interest in his own regalia ;-)

Re: Need help from Japanese Occultists Question about imperial heirlooms
The Mirror is probably round and made of a highly polished metal, such as bronze or brass. The obverse side may be decorated with patterns like curls, concentric circles of brass, and so on. It is said to be "eight spans" in terms of size.

No known photograph or drawing exists as far as I know. However, mirrors such as the one I described above (only much smaller) were commonly used in ancient Shinto rituals about the time of the beginning of Imperial Rule.

The mirror, also known as the Yata no Kagami, is the symbol for honesty, wisdom, and light.  Because a mirror always reflects – never distorting the “facts” – it is the metaphorical symbol of truthfulness.  Shinto legend believes this symbol of light came to be through the sun-goddess Amaterasu.   After being publicly humiliated by her brother Susanoo, she hid herself in a cave, depriving the world of light.  To draw her out of hiding, the other gods pretended to have a celebration outside the cave.  Curious as to what was going on, she peeked outside of her hiding place and gazed right into the mystical mirror that the gods had strategically place at the opening of the cave.  Because she never had seen a mirror before, she thought it to be another godess, more beautiful and radiant than she.  Taking advantage of her surprise, the gods wrenched her out of the cave and sealed it up which ultimately forced her to stay outside the one hiding place she could go, and promised the world that the sun – Ameterasu – will always come.  The Mirror is presumed to be housed at the Ise Shrine, Mie Prefecture, Japan.
