Some of the main sights and attractions.

Noma-daibo Temple (野間大坊寺)-resting place of Yoshitomo Minamoto
This temple was build at the behest of *Emperor Shirakawa. In the temple precinct, you will find the graves of historic heroes such as *Yoshitomo Minamoto and *Yasuyori Taira. This special precinct includes a hondo (main hall), the kyakuden (reception hall) of a prefecturally designated cultural property, and a bonsho (temple bell) designated as an important national cultural asset.

Emperor Shirakawa
Personal name SADAHITO (1053-1129). 72nd emperor of Japan who abdicated the throne and then established a cloister government (insei) through which he maintained his power unburdened by the exacting ceremonial and family duties required of the legitimate Japanese sovereign. He thus established a precedent that allowed the Japanese emperor to abdicate and, once away from the court, to assume the real power of government.  


MINAMOTO YOSHITOMO (1123-1160), Japanese warrior whose support of Taira Kiyomori, the leader of the Taira clan, in the Hogen Disturbance (1156) was decisive in a Taira victory over the Minamoto clan, headed by Yoshitomo’s own father, Minamoto Tameyoshi. After Kiyomori’s victory, Yoshitomo was ordered to kill his father. He refused but another Minamoto officer, saying it would be a disgrace to allow a Taira to execute Tameyoshi, performed the deed. Dissatisfied with his share of the spoils, Yoshitomo in 1159 took advantage of Taira Kiyomori’s absence from the capital to attempt a coup d’etat. In the resulting Heiji Distu

He thus established a precedent that allowed the Japanese emperor to abdicate and, once away from the court, to assume the real power of government.  


MINAMOTO YOSHITOMO (1123-1160), Japanese warrior whose support of Taira Kiyomori, the leader of the Taira clan, in the Hogen Disturbance (1156) was decisive in a Taira victory over the Minamoto clan, headed by Yoshitomo’s own father, Minamoto Tameyoshi. After Kiyomori’s victory, Yoshitomo was ordered to kill his father. He refused but another Minamoto officer, saying it would be a disgrace to allow a Taira to execute Tameyoshi, performed the deed. Dissatisfied with his share of the spoils, Yoshitomo in 1159 took advantage of Taira Kiyomori’s absence from the capital to attempt a coup d’etat. In the resulting Heiji Disturbance (1159), one of the most colorful episodes in Japanese history, Kiyomori rallied his forces and defeated Yoshimoto. Yoshitomo escaped, only to be killed while seeking refuge in eastern Japan. Two of his sons survived, however, and one, Yoritomo, later defeated Kiyomori and established Minamoto dominance over all of Japan. 

Yasuyori Taira
Warrior of the later Heian to Kamakura period. Yasuyori  was allied with the circle of retired Emperor Goshirakawa(1155-1158) who plotted against Taira no Kiyomori's (1118-81) rule at the Shishigatani villa in 1177. Yasuyori, along with co-conspirators Shunkan, a Shingon priest and Fujiwara no Naritsune were exiled to Kikaigashima, south of Kyushu. According to The Tale of The Heike (Heike Monogatari), a year after banishment, an amnesty was declared and Yasuyori and Naritsune were pardoned.
