Yang Guifei Village

Genre : Natural Wonders

Area : Yuya & Heki

A Chinese-style garden constructed on a site with legendary ties to ancient Chinese beauty Yang Guifei

Yang Guifei was an imperial courtesan in China during the 6th century, during which time she was reknowned as one of the "Four Beauties of Ancient China." She was killed during a rebellion against the emperor, but local legend in Nagato suggests an alternative ending, in which Yang Guifei managed to escape a grisly end, and fled China on a boat that landed here, on the Mukatsu Peninsula. A grave in placed for her here, at which it states that she passed away from illness instead.
