Heike-no-Sato Village was established on the basis of a legend that the Taira clan (Heishi) was secretly escaped to this region and survived after defeated by the Minamoto clan (Genji) in the Genpei War (1180 - 1185).
The facility illustrates the lifestyle of the Taira clan at that time.
It includes statues of the leader of the Taira clan Taira-no-Kiyomori and the famous clan member Taira-no-Atsumori, images of Samurai warriors going out to the Battle of Ichi-no-Tani, and more.
You can also try their traditional food.
