Qui Shi Huang (259-210 BC), the first emperor of China, gets mixed reviews by historians because he patched up The Great Wall and ended the choas but built dictatorship to snuff out all the opposite party.

Rumor has it that on his late day, he feared death so much as to desperately want to find the immortal medicine.

He was cheated by a priest, who claimed that the medicine he wanted was in a island just off northeast China coast.

Qui Shi Huang sent 5000 virgin boys and girls with Chui to go on an immortal quest but Chui never came back since then.

Folklorists think that the island was Japan and Japanese are the descent of those people and that that's why Japanese also has Chinese characters.
