Okehazama 1965

The Arimatsu Okehazama Battlefield has changed over the years.  The Kajino family gave me this photo of the Okehazama battlefield that was taken in 1965.  The first thing you will notice is that the area has not changed much since the Taisho Era.  It is still very rural and the population small.  This photo can give historians clues on what the battlefield was like and how it was fought.

Now look at the Arimatsu Okehazama Battlefield today.  The geography has completely changed as well as the population.  It is much harder now to get an idea on what the battlefield was like since the area was developed.  That is why the 1965 photo is so important because it does give the historian a better idea on how the battle was fought and looked like during Nobunaga's greatest hour.

Nobunaga no tame!
