Here is an old photo of the Okehazama area during the Taisho Era. The photo has a crease due to packing my bags while heading home. The chances are high in my opinion that this is what Okehazama looked like during Nobunaga's time. Nothing but farmland and trees. This photo blew me away. Now I have a picture of what the Battle of Okehazama was like in my head. No matter what people say about the frontal attack, I still say it was surprise attack all the way.
Also there is a link that has some photos taken by Dohaland during the Nagoya Festival. The Nobunaga Zen bento was superb. If anybody who is in the Nagoya area, please try it. It is worth the 1200 Yen price. The miso yakionigiri was the best in my opinion. There is construction going on at Atsuta Shrine at the moment and the fresh smell of new wood is so delicious! Dohaland also took some photos of me at the Nobunaga Victory Wall as well. When I visit Atsuta Shrine, the Nobunaga Victory Wall is the first place to go. The wall is still the original and constructed with mud, lime and grease.
Yes, I do enjoy wearing kimono and it was not a rental. I own a couple of kimono and yukatas in my personal collection.
Many thanks to Dohaland who made the day special.
Nobunaga no tame!
