When Nobunaga made his visit to Kyoto in 1559 to meet with shogun Ashikaga Yoshiteru. During this trip he made visits to Nara and Sakai. However, when Nobunaga became the most feared man in Japan, he headed back to Kyoto in 1568 along with soon to be shogun Ashikaga Yoshiaki. Nobunaga's Kyoto lodging was at Toji (picture above). During his long military career, Nobunaga lodged at various temples or mansions in Kyoto. There are two valuable resources that includes the Uesama's Kyoto lodgings, the Shincho-Ko ki and Kawauchi Masayoshi's book Nobunaga ga Mita Sengoku Kyoto.
Kawauchi on page 159 has a list on where and when Nobunaga lodged at Kyoto. He ends up using the Shincho-Ko ki as the main source. Here is a list on where Nobunaga stayed and how many times.
- Roan in Upper Kyoto-1
- Mushannokoji in Upper Kyoto (Nobunaga never got to use this facility due to hostilities between him and Yoshiaki. Yoshiaki gave orders to destroy it and quality of lumber was taken by all who was able to attain it.)
Nobunaga no tame!
