2014 Awards: Nohime



2014 was a good year for Nobunaga's lovely wife Nohime (1535-1612).  An English novel, a bus in Gifu, and a couple of dramas on the Viper of Mino's daughter.  There is still a lot mysteries on this woman from Mino.  Nohime had various names such as Lady Sagiyama (born at Sagiyama Castle in Mino), Kicho, and Azuchi-dono.  Good looking and a mind like a genius, she provided Nobunaga the support he needed to conquer Japan.  Kyoko Kagawa has played my favorite Nohime so far.  She starred in the 1959 Nobunaga movie as Nobunaga wife.

Ah! I have that New Year's Nobunaga special. It is what it is, a feel good New Year's Day jidaigeki.

@Dae: Oh, was Natori Yuuko the one in Ogon no Hibi? XD I downloaded that drama a long time a go but I haven't had the time to watch it...

Natari Yuko also appeared in Toshiie to Matsu and the Ieyasu New Year's drama many years ago.
