Kenkun Jinja Matsuri

On 19 October, Kenkun Jinja will have a festival dedicated to Nobunaga's Kyoto arrival in 1568.  The shrine is located in Kyoto on the Funaoka hill.  The festival will include a performance of Atsumori and samurai in armor shooting their matchlock rifles.  The guy who is shooting his rifle is the smart one in my opinion.  Look at his sashimono.  It has the Oda crest, the Tenka Fubu seal, and the Uesama's signature.

I have written several posts on Kenkun Jinja and here are some links.

Tenka no tame!
