Shobata Castle News
There is news that an artist has created a Nobunaga mosaic for Shobata Castle's PR. If you have read my previous posts on Shobata Castle, you know I do not believe that Nobunaga was born at Shobata. I believe that he was born at Nagoya Castle. The only source that points to Shobata is the Bishukojoshi. As for the art work, the picture above proves it was done in good taste. By the way, I like it. Here is the link to the article on the Nobunaga mosaic. http://www.yomiuri.co.jp/e-japan/aichi/news/20140323-OYT8T00523.htm
It seems that Shobata Castle was huge during its day. It measured between 672 by 708 feet and it was constructed by Oda Nobusada in the early 1500s.
Nobunaga no tame!
