Dosan Portrait

This is a portrait of Nobunaga's father-in-law Saito Dosan.  After Dosan was killed at the Battle of Nagaragawa in 1556, Nobunaga's wife Nohime, requested an artist to draw a portrait of her father.  Not long after the portrait was done, Nohime donated the painting to Jozaiji Temple.  The temple is about a five minute walk from Gifu Castle Park.

Nobunaga no tame!
