Sena Ujitoshi's Camp during Okehazama



Sena Ujitoshi, a retainer of the Imagawa, camped around the Okehazama area on May 17th, 1560 for tactical reasons. However, the English translation on the bulletin board stated the year date as 1563, which is wrong. A big mistake.

Sena Ujitoshi had around two hundred soldiers with him at the time.
The location of the three landmarks are at the Arimatsu Okehazama Battlefield. The open country area is where Sena Ujitoshi camped and the Senpyo-no-matsu is only a three minute walk from the camp area.

As for the photos, they were taken in October while I was in Japan.

That's too bad. Who placed the sign there?

It is not the sign itself. It is just the English translation of the battle date. 1563 is three years late. As everyone knows the correct battle date is 1560.
