Notes - Oda Nobunaga: Fool of Owari (2)

Notes - Oda Nobunaga: Fool of Owari

The Fool of Owari
-Arguably the death of Nobuhide gave the Imagawa a chance to make incursions into Owari itself. This was not an issue in the reign of Nobuhide. What was more they received support from some lords within Owari which they capitalized on early in Nobunaga's reign.

-Nobusada and his son Nobuhide were patrons of temples. They supported the Ryusen temple in Owari and Nobuhide had constructed the Bansho temple....

The Yogi Cat of Mamallapuram

By Jim R. McClanahan

I love cats and so does most of the internet. They are the perfect mix of cuteness and ferocity, chubbiness and athleticism, laziness and boundless, fiery energy. Archaeological evidence suggests our feline overlords first self-domesticated themselves as far back as 10,000 years ago in Turkey. They are believed to have entered into a symbiotic relationship with farmers by hunting mice that endangered crops. DNA evidence...

Oda Nobunaga: Conqueror of Owari (3)

Claiming Owari Province

At that time Oda Nobukata of Iwakura castle, who ruled the four upper districts in northern Owari, made an alliance with Saito Yoshitatsu against Oda Nobunaga, who now ruled the four lower districts of southern Owari. The loyalty of the feudal clans in the lower districts was also questionable given the situation. Not long after, Oda Nobukata attacked a village called Shimo no Go with his Iwakura army, which was located 2 kilometers from Nobunaga's Kiyosu castle....

Oda Nobunaga: Fool of Owari

The Fool of Owari
Oda Nobunaga, now aged about 18, had inherited a relatively strong clan but also a tenuous hold now that his strong father had died, especially with the ever growing threat of the Imagawa clan in the east, an unstable peace with the Kiyosu Oda and a potentially unreliable if not treacherous ally in the Saito clan. So too were there potential enemies within the Oda branch of the deceased Danjo no Jo. At the Bansho temple, which had...
