This chapter discusses the hidden histories in The Tale of the Heike and questions its haecceity as a canonical work. It highlights the problem concerning the relationship between space and narrative in their cultural, ritual and political manifestations and the failure of English-language scholarship on Japan to consider body of knowledge and ritual praxis related to Daoist and yin-yang ideas. This chapter suggests that these problems are connected to the problem of cultural memory.

Keywords:   The Tale of the Heike, hidden histories, canonical work, space, narrative, Japan, Daoist ideas, yin-yang, cultural memory
