Okehazama Video

Today is the day that Japanese history changed forever when Oda Nobunaga defeated Imagawa Yoshimoto at the Battle of Okehazama in 1560.  I have a nice video to share with you about the battle by local Okehazama historian Wataru Kajino (Mr. Okehazama). The video is in Japanese and it discusses such topics such as the history of the area, the battle, and the differences between the Shincho-Ko ki and Shinchoki as well.  Even though the video is in Japanese, it is fairly easy to understand as Mr. Okehazama speaks at a slow and easy pace.  This is a gold mine for the Battle of Okehazama scholar like myself and I highly recommend it.

Owari ni hikari wo

Nobunaga no tame!
