Today is a somber day as we remember that the Uesama was betrayed by Akechi Mitsuhide and took his life at the Honnoji Temple in Kyoto 2 June 1582. Nobunaga fought gallantly to the end even though he knew it was a lost cause. I have a post from about four years ago on Luis Frois written account on the Honnoji Rebellion: http://otsuke.blogspot.com/2010/06/honnoji-by-luis-frois.html
Nobunaga no tame! Tenka no tame! Owari ni hikari wo!
