My good friend Seishiro Mizuno, who is from the Nagoya area has done some good work on the early career of Nobunaga. His book Okehazama no Michi has lots photos and maps on Nobunaga's birth to the Battle of Okehazama. Now Mr. Mizuno has written a short column on Agui Castle. http://ow.ly/uJYL4
Agui Castle played a very small role in the Battle of Okehazama. Before Matsudaira Motoyasu (Tokugawa Ieyasu) delivered the supplies to Odaka Castle, he was able to visit his mother Odai no Kata at Agui Castle. Odai no Kata was remarried to Hisamatsu Toshikatsu, who was the lord of Agui Castle. After meeting his mother, Motoyasu delivered the supplies to Odaka and later attacked Fort Marune on the eve of The Battle of Okehazama.
Tenka no tame!
