Arimatsu Okehazama Battlefield

Now I will focus on the Arimatsu Okehazama Battlefield. There are many landmarks related to the battle at this location. If you do plan to visit both battlefields, it will take you at least a day to soak it all in. I advise you to take your time and enjoy yourself.

This is the Arimatsu Okehazama Kosenjo Park stone.

This bulletin board explains the battle in Japanese and English. The battlefield park area is some what eerie and spooky. However, a must see.

This is the Arimatsu Okehazama Battlefield map located near the Senpyo-no matsu landmark. The map has all the landmarks related to the battle. However, the map is in Japanese.

This is the Arimatsu Okehazama landmark post located in the park area.

This is the well where Imagawa Yoshimoto's decapitated head was supposed to be cleaned. My favorite Arimatsu Okehazama Battlefield landmark by far. Again, the explanation is only in Japanese.

I also ordered Ehata Hidesato's book Okehazama Kamiikusa no Senryaku to Jitsuzou and should receive it sometime next month. Mr. Kajino, have you read this book yet?

Nobunaga no tame!
