Okehazama Tourism I

There is another article related to Nagoya mayor Kawamura and the Battle of Okehazama.  In fact, one of my Sengoku colleagues, Chris Glenn participated in meeting.  Again, I wish I was there to give my input on the Battle of Okehazama, how to promote tourism, and preserve both battlefields.

Gyuichi and Dobora

The Battle of Dobora 1565 in eastern Mino was an important victory for Nobunaga.  With the victory, eastern Mino was in the hands of Nobunaga.  Two people stood out at the Battle of Dobora, Niwa Nagahide and Ota Gyuichi.  Gyuichi was able to receive additional land for his efforts at the Battle of Dobora.  Shincho-Ko ki (The Chonicle of Lord Nobunaga) p. 113.

"In front of the entrance to the outer enceinte was a tall house.  Ota Matasuke (Gyuichi) went up top of it all by himself and shot down the defenders one after another; not one of his arrows missed its mark.  Nobunaga saw him in action and sent him a messenger thrice to tell him that he was doing a wonderful job.  As a token of his admiration, Nobunaga assigned an additional estate of land to Matasuke."
