The Taira and Minamoto clans became embroiled in a national civi war in 12th century Japan. In the Battle of Dan-no-ura (1185), the defeated Taira clan fled to Shiiba, a village in what was then Hyūga Province. Nasu "Daihachiro" Munehisa, after having received orders to hunt down remaining members of the Taira clan, traveled deep into the mountains of Shiiba. Feeling pitty for the exiled Taira clan members, who were living in a state of misery, Nasu turned his back on his mission. He married Tsurutomi of the Taira clan and settled on Shiiba. In those days, millet was a staple. The artisans of Shiiba began making millet puppets to commemorate this story.
