Heike Village has reproduced and relocated the private houses of “Heike-no-Ochudo” (fugitives from the Genpei War, 1180-1185) in one location in order to show future generations the lifestyle of these people. Heike Village was set up in 1985, exactly 800 years after Heike was defeated against Genpei. With nine thatched-roof buildings scattered around the vast facility, the atmosphere is so authentic that visitors will no doubt feel like they have time-travelled back to the Heian era (794-1185)! The facility also exhibits statues of Taira-no-Kiyomori (a military leader of the time), as well as other lifestyle items and even a place where visitors can taste “Kibi Mochi” (a type of millet rice cake eaten by defeated soldiers).
