Dedicated to Yoshisutne
Nov 2015 • Couples
Dedicated to the hero Yoshisutne, what is more to say? A must visit for fans. This place closes at 4 pm which I found out the hard way. Will return to it when I return next year. Don't forget to visit his loyal retainer's grave - Benke - just outside Cho monji.

Go if you have seen Kanjincho at the Kabuki 5-6 time like we have

This site, where really nothing remains, was the presumed/reputed location of the residence of Minamoto, Yoshitsune one of the all time great tragic characters of Japanese history. Nothing, repeat nothing remains but the location and a small shrine dedicated to Yoshitsune. There is a nice view out over the countryside which is still mostly rural although Hiraizumi was a major city of 50-100,000 in the time when Yoshitsune fled here accompanied by the giant warrier priest Benkei and a small band of supporters. Note that it is now on a very narrow ridge but in Yoshitsune's time this was a fairly wide plateau which has been narrowed over the years by the river flowing below it.

Is it worth seeing, well probably not, UNLESS you are hung up on Kanjincho like my wife and I are.
