2000 Okehazama Documentary

I recently found a documentary clip on the Battle of Okehazama that was aired back in November of 2000.  The show was hosted by Matsudaira Sadatomo and the Sengoku historian Owada Tetsuo appeared as a special guest.  The documentary is in Japanese.

Here are the topics that were discussed:

  • The bad weather (rain/thunderstorm)
  • Yanada Masatsuna's intelligence
  • Nobunaga's youth
  • Geography of the Okehazama area
  • The timing was critical when Nobunaga received the intelligence
  • Usage of the Shincho-Ko ki
The links to the videos:

I do own a copy of the Okehazama special that was aired back in 2007.  Both documentaries are very good and useful to understand the battle of Okehazama.

Nobunaga no tame!
