Yamauchi Kazutoyo's Birth Place
Yamauchi Kazutoyo who started to serve Nobunaga in the 1560s, was born at Kuroda Castle located in modern day Owari Ichinomiya. He was one of many so called Aichi bushi. Kazutoyo was born in 1545/6 and died in 1605.

Owada Tetsuo has written a book on Kazutoyo as well.
The book is easy to read and a must for anybody who wants to know more about Kazutoyo's career.
I will be out for about two weeks and please leave comments for any breaking news on Nobunaga.
Nobunaga no tame!
