Oda Nobunaga - King of Zipangu
1992 NHK Taiga Drama
Starring : OGATA Naoto, NAKAMURA Toru, Frank Neil

This NHK Taiga Drama spans the entire life of Japan’s first great warlord, Oda Nobunaga, who began the process of uniting Japan that was continued by Toyotomi Hideyoshi and completed by Tokugawa Ieyasu. Great history, together with tremendous battle scenes.

Nobunaga was born Oda Kippôshi, the second son of Oda Nobuhide (1508? -1549), a minor lord whose family once served the Shiba shugo. Nobuhide was a skilled warrior, and spent much of his time fighting the samurai of Mikawa and Mino. He also had enemies closer to home - the Oda were divided into two separate camps, with both vying for control of Owari's eight districts. Nobuhide's branch, of which he was one of three elders, was based at Kiyosu castle. The rival branch was to the north, in Iwakura Castle.

In the third year of Eiroku (1560), at the battle of Okehazama, Nobunaga destroyed Imagawa Yoshimoto, and his name became known throughout the realm. Within the next 10 years, he had conquered Mino province and began to aim at unifying the country.

Over the next 11 years, he took in Ashikaga Yoshiaki and brought him to the capital (Kyôto), gaining him control of the central Kinai region. At the battle of Anegawa, Nobunaga destroyed the united armies of the Asai and Asakura, and in the 3rd year of Tensho (1575) he defeated Takeda Katsuyori at the battle of Nagashino in Mikawa Province.

However, in the sixth month of the 10th year of Tensho (june, 1582), while Hideyoshi was on the road to the Chugoku region, Akechi Mitsuhide made a surprise attack on Nobunaga at the Honnoji temple in Kyoto; Nobunaga killed himself with his own sword.

Oda Nobunaga died one of most interesting and controversial figures in Japanese history who continues to inspire debate among scholars and enthusiasts of the Sengoku Period. Oda Nobunaga, like Taira Kiyomori (his supposed antecedent), lives on in history as a complicated man who changed Japan forever.
