Okehazama Talk Show
There will be a talk show on the Battle of Okehazama next month near Nagoya Station. Sunday September 6th, is the date the talk show will be held. The first stage will be hosted by historian Izawa Motohiko. His theme will be "Sengoku Kassen Saikou" Sengoku Battles Reconsidered. I was lucky to meet Mr. Izawa earlier this year at the Toyoake City Okehazama Battlefield.
The second panel will be hosted by several people. People such as my colleague Chris Glenn, Nagoya Mayor Kawamura, and Mr. Okehazama's son (Izumi Kajino). The theme for the second panel is about the Battle of Okehazama and Tourism. The second panel should be interesting since I know Chris and Izumi very well. Mayor Kawamura will certainly entertain the audience.
As a member of the Arimatsu Okehazama Preservation Committee, I would love to attend. I want to know what people think about Nobunaga and his victory at the Battle of Okehazama. Also, what the people's opinions and ideas to promote tourism to the battlefield and how to preserve it.
Nobunaga no tame!
