一日の画像 - Picture of the Day

In keeping with Nobunaga November we chose to feature this statue of Shibata Katsuie that sits guard at the site of Kitanojo Castle. "Oni" Demon Shibata was one of Oda Nobunaga's Generals who married Nobunaga's sister Lady Oichi. Facing defeat by Toyotomi Hideyoshi's forces, it is said that Oni Shibata died together with Lady Oichi at the end of the Battle of Shizugatake. As we continue on with the NHK Taiga Drama Hime-tachi no Sengoku or Princess Go, we will feature other real life characters who served the great warlord Oda Nobunaga.
