Okehazama Festival

The 2009 Okehazama Matsuri will be held on June 6th and 7th. I have the link which provides more information. Unfortunately, the link is only in Japanese. However, if you you around the area during the time of the festival, please go.

Hello,nice to meet you!
Im dohaland.
I have seen the homepage interestingly.
(My English is so poor,so sorry!)

Thanks for introduce Okehazama Festival in AICHI!
Here Aichi in which I live is Nobunaga's birth hometown. Furthermore, also for Hideyoshi and Ieyasu who took the world, Aichi is a hometown.
Moreover,about 70 percent of the Misters all over the country were the directions associated with Aichi at the Edo period. Aichi is just a country of samurai!
now -- spreading this historical fact more and activating this town-- Aichi Prefecture is doing its best.

And
I wanna recommend the recent Japanese movie"GOEMON"!
It is the SENGOKU ERA.Nobunaga's performance time is short,but Nobunaga is drawn as a Warring States general worshipped by all people!
As for what should be taken care, a historical fact is considerably different story deployment.For example, many West elements are contained・・・Although it is very interesting for me・・・

Since it is opened to the public all over the world, please have a look, if it is time.

Thank you for the reply. I wrote a book about the Battle of Okehazama. The first edition was published last december, but it was rushed and had many errors. I have corrected the mistakes and it looks more professionaly done. The second edition should be out by late May or early June.

I have lived in Gifu 2000-1 to study there, so I was always in Nagoya at least once a week. I love Gifu and Aichi, home of the warriors. I have been to many places related to Nobunaga and Ieyasu in Aichi.

I have seen the trailer to Goemon and it reminds me a bit of the Owl's Castle, a good ninja movie.
Your English is great and my japanese is well, so-so.

Again, thanks for replying
