Stone monument commemorating the birth of Satsuma no Kami, Taira- Tadanori

Taira-Tadanori was a military commander at the end of the Heian era, and the son of Tadamori. He lived in Kumano until he was eighteen, when he is said to have accompanied his elder brother Taira no Kiyomori, who had come to Kumano on a pilgrimage, back to the capital. He proved his military prowess in the struggle between the Genji and the Heike, but after fleeing the capital, he was defeated at the battle of Ichinotani, where his short life of forty years came to an end.
