graves of the Taira clansmen

The picture above shows the cenotaphs of the Taira clansmen in Kyoto in 2002. Somehow they had continuously been beaten by the Minamotos for the last thousand of years, despite the rise of their offspring Oda Nobunaga in 1560. Foreign fans can be found loitering at the Minamotos' graveyard in Kamakura -- but the Tairas rarely got a symphatetic stranger visiting them.
