Nagoya Castle is back in the news for Nobunaga's birthplace. Link: https://ameblo.jp/mikawa-hide/entry-12397181294.html
No matter if Nobunaga's birth place is Shobata or not, chances are it was Nagoya. Shobata was too close to enemy territory, Mino. Nagoya, located in the heart of Owari was a safer place for the birth of Nobunaga. If Shibota was Nobunaga's birthplace, he was taken to Nagoya as soon as possible for safety issues. I still stand with Nagoya as the place of birth for Nobunaga. At the same time, I add Shobata for another point of view to be fair. Nagoya Castle during the time of Nobunaga was measured 1640 by 1968 feet in length.
Nobunaga no tame!
