Historical battle site where samurai fought
‣ This is one site of the Genpei Battle, fought between two groups of samuri – the Genji and the Heike – in old Japan.
‣ At Dannoura, the location where the Genpei Battle was fought, the Heiki hid their warship, and the archers prayed for their arrows to hit their target at the Inori-iwa (Praying Rock). Many ruins from this time tell the history.
