Okehazama mystery continues

The Okehazama Battlefield mystery continues.  My good friend Mikawa Hide has just written a post on this on his blog.  http://ameblo.jp/mikawa-hide/entry-11471015084.html

Key points from Mikawa-hide's blog: Yoshimoto's main army and where Yoshimoto was killed.  Even a scholar like myself has a hard time which battlefield is the correct one.  I always suggest one must visit both the Arimatsu and Toyoake City battlefields in order to get a better understanding of the battle and the outcome.  One must remember that both battlefields are legit and have some sort of relationship with one another.  Yes, I do think the Arimatsu Okehazama battlefield is the correct place, but understand that Toyoake City is still a legitimate battlefield.  When you visit both battlefields frequently,  you will be surprised how much the relationship between them are important.

Tenka no tame!
