Yoshimoto had many weaknesses and it cost him his life and later, the Imagawa house. Here are a few:
- Treated the Matsudaira of Mikawa like dirt.
- Imagawa soldiers not battled seasoned compared to the Oda.
- Not physically fit to fight. Some say, he could not saddled up on a horse.
- The loss of his advisor Taigen Suufu (Sessai).
- Cursed at the start?
Anyways, Today I finally received War and Faith: Ikko Ikki in Late Muromachi Japan by Carol Richmond Tsang in the mail today. Looking forward to the book.
Nobunaga no tame!
