Wagashi Nobunaga

The Japanese are known for their unique art and this Nobunaga statue made out of wagashi (Japanese sweets) proves it.  That is right, the statue is made out of Japanese sweets. The Wagashi Nobunaga statue is located near the information desk at Nagoya International Airport.  Actually, it was done in good taste.  The armor and sword looks real, but wish that he was holding a matchlock rife because Nobunaga was known for his use of firearms.

I leave for Japan next week and will give a small tour of Gifu to a few friends of mine.  The tour will include Saito Dosan and Nobunaga's role in creating Gifu/Mino into a major province.

Nobunaga no tame!
