Heike-no-sato平家の里

Amusement Park / Theme Park

This is a historical theme park located in the Yunishigawa Onsen area of Nikko City, and is a recreated folk village to show the community lifestyle of the Heike’s ochiudo (defeated Heike people). Inside, the park is divided up into thatched-roof homes relocated from other areas, displays about folk-cultural properties such as tools with bamboo ladles as well as the genealogy and armor of the Heike, and places to purchase sweets and souvenirs. “Tochi mochi” and “oshiruko” are popular sweets featuring the Heike ochiudo flavors. During the “Heike Big Festival” in June, a procession of historical figures which look as though they were in a Heike picture scroll parade down a distance of nearly two kilometers.

平家の落人伝説で知られる湯西川の上流に復元された建物がいくつか建っていました。ちょうど紅葉が綺麗でした。
観光客もさほど多くないのでゆっくりと散策できました。混雑する秋の京都よりもよほど良いのではと思いました。

Most visits to Tochigi revolve around Nikko, a small city home to the spectacular, lavishly decorated Toshogu Shrine and Nikko National Park with its mountains, lakes, waterfalls, onsen, and wild monkeys. Neighboring Oku-Nikko is an extension of the fantastic scenery famous for its autumn leaves, while Tochigi's capital, Utsunomiya, is the only place in the world where you can find oya stone beautifully exhibited in temples and the Oya History Museum.
