History of Bankyu

In the mid-12th century, two great clans-the Heike Dynasty and the Genji Dynasty- fought many battles for supremacy. Defeated by the Genjis in 1185, the Heikes fled to this place and decided to settle down. After the source of hot springs was discovered in 1573, “Bankyu Ryokan” (now Honke Bankyu) was established as an inn for visitors taking hot spring cures. Now the 25th-generation descendant of the Heike Dynasty runs Honke Bankyu. In 1994, offspring of the Genji and the Heike buried the hatchet for the first time since the 1185 battle at Heike Villages, located near Bankyu, which is now famous as the land of reconciliation.
