    Yūryaku was a 5th-century monarch and one of the five kings of Wa(Japan) who sent missions to China. He was born Prince Ōhatuse no Waka Takeru. After his elder brother Emperor Ankō was murdered, he won the struggle against his other brothers and became the new emperor with the reigning name Yūryaku (雄略天皇). His title at his own lifetime was certainly not tennō (emperor), but presumably Ōkimi and/or Sumeramikoto (治天下大王 - ameno****a shiroshimesu ōkimi, or sumera no mikoto, Great King who rules all under heaven) and/or king of Yamato (ヤマト大王/大君 - yamato ōkimi, Great King of Yamato).
    The Liu Song court of China awarded Emperor Yūryaku (known to the Chinese as King Bu) the title of 使持節都督倭新羅任那加羅秦韓慕韓六国諸軍事安東太将軍倭王 (Supreme Military Commander of the Six States of Wa, Silla, Mimana, Gaya, Jinhan and Mahan, and General Pacifying the East and King of Wa.) However the power that the Yamato court of Japan held in Southern Korea is still considered controversial and unproven.

    The Japanese (Jomon/Ainu and later Yayoi) did tattoo their faces from Neolithic times, but around the 4th or 5th century the practiced stopped as they came more into China's sphere of influence. They Chinese regarded tattooing as barbaric.
    What he is wearing is a type of makeup seen on many haniwa (clay figures) from the 4th to 7th centuries.

    Fashion always changes over time. But yes around the 8th to 9th century Japanese fashion was very similar to China for the nobility.
