About this sight

These giant twin pines stand a few paces from the Yahiko village office and measure a height of about 10 meters. Their branches cover an impressive area of about 36 square meters. Legend has it that a famous warrior from the late Heian period (794-1185), Minamoto no Yoshitsune, stopped here for a rest on his way into exile and relaxed in the shade of the twin pines.
