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!
