    Looks like a nice helmet shell in a large size.

    Is the star painted white or is that just reflection from the sunlight?

    Does anyone know what it says on the front rim?

    The rule of thumb is the words are usually names. This time it's no exception.

    菅原 (Sugawara) is a surname. 宮坂 (Miyasaka) is another surname. I guess that the helmet was shared by two guys.

    The name in the middle could also be 宮堀 Miyahori. The word is not clearly written. It goes both ways. Mr. Google shows 宮堀 14 million hits; 宮坂 4.8 million hits.
