Taira-no-Kiyomori is famous for the first samurai who established the age of samurai after the decline of the nobles in the end of Heian era (the 12th century).
His family was based at the Rokuhara area in Kyoto (between Gojo and Shichijo), therefore some famous temples around this area such as Sanjusangen-do, Rokuharamitsu-ji etc. are related to Taira-no-Kiyomori. Itsukushima-jinjya Shrine in Hiroshima was also built by Kiyomori. In this exhibition, related fine arts, handiworks and some materials had been kept in the temples will be displayed.
