Shobata News

Shobata Castle landmark was in the news recently when the statues of Nobunaga's father and mother along with the baby Uesama was erected near Shobata station.  Nice gesture, but I do not think Shobata Castle was the birthplace of the Uesama.  The only document that backs up Shobata is the Bishukojoushi.  I am more comfortable in stating that Nobunaga was born at Nagoya Castle in 1534.  Earlier this year, I have written a post on this subject:http://www.otsuke.blogspot.com/2013/01/nobunagas-birth-i.html
