Heian period

The capital is moved to Heiankyō in Kyoto. The golden age of the society of court nobles is brought about, and a peaceful period continues. However, unsatisfied farm workers in rural areas organize into armed groups (bushidan) and start to overwhelm the imperial court’s power. The Taira clan led by Taira no Kiyomori seizes leadership, but war breaks out due to conflict between armed groups and the Minamoto clan led by Minamoto no Yoritomo destroys them.
