Please note: This article is about the peasant woman. For other uses of the term, please see Rei (disambiguation).

Rei was a peasant woman in the late 9th century who found a piece of polished metal in the water, which displayed images of the Spirit Realms and the creatures therein. Transfigured by this experience, she became a monastic hermit, seeking further visions of the reality outside Ningen-do. She lived in the Shrine of Heaven's Mirror until she passed away in the early 10th century. The piece of polished metal was brought out once a year on the ninth day of the Month of the Tiger, the anniversary of Rei's discovery, in the so-called Festival of the Mirror. [1]
