Happy New Year to all!
The best New Year for Nobunaga was in 1574 at Gifu Castle.
The skulls of Azai Nagamasa, Azai Hisamasa (Nagamasa's father), and Asakura Yoshikage were lacquered in gold. I wonder what was going through the minds of Nobunaga's men when they had to drink up. Now that is how you celebrate a New Year!
You can find this information in Ota Gyuuichi's and Oze Hoan's Nobunaga books.
Also in Jereon Lamers, Japonius Tyrannus, on page 32.
I wish the U.S. would something similar to the heads of Bin Laden, A-Jad, Hugo Chavez, and any other thug in the world.
Tenka no tame! Nobunaga no tame!
