Yanaginogosho Iseki

柳之御所遺跡(平泉町)

( National historic site )
This is a large-scale site of Hiraizumi Mansion, the administrative center of the Oshu Fujiwara clan, which existed about 800 to 900 years ago in the late Heian period. It is a 110,000-m² site by the Kitakami River, with many historical remains that give us an idea of what life was like in the Heian period: a garden, pillars, china, tableware, etc. In 1997, it was designated as a national historic site; it is the only site in Japan that explains the culture and lifestyle of the ruling class of that time period. The site is still being excavated today.

Yanaginogosho Museum
The Site itself is not normally open to the public, but you can see many of the excavated items at the adjacent Yanaginogosho Museum. There are over 400 items, including the first village emblem in Japan.
