2016/05/10 (Tue) I am proud of ISESHIMA(3)
Ladies and Gentlemen

This is not about Iseshima. This is ISE province's next door OWARI. However, Ise and Owari had and has the closest relations because oda's soldiers consist of Ise Samurais.

The Battle of Okehazama (桶狭間の戦い)took place in June 1560. In this battle, Oda Nobunaga defeated Imagawa Yoshimoto and established himself as one of the front-running warlords in the Sengoku period.

In June 1560, Imagawa Yoshimoto, with an army of about 25,000 men, set forth on a march to Kyoto. Entering the Oda territories in Owari Province, he first took the border fortresses of Washizu and Marune before setting up camp in a wooded gorge known as Dengaku-hazama. This was all reported to Oda Nobunaga by his scouts and, in response, Nobunaga then led his own forces into position at a temple called Zenshō-ji, a short distance away, on the other side of the Tōkaidō (road).

Had Nobunaga decided on a frontal assault, the battle would have most likely been lost, as his army was heavily outnumbered by the Imagawa forces. A frontal assault would have resulted in defeat and an attempt to hold out at Zenshō-ji would have only lasted a few days. Because the odds were against their side, some of Nobunaga's advisers suggested "to stand a siege at Kiyosu." Nobunaga refused, stating that a "only a strong offensive policy could make up for the superior numbers of the enemy, and calmly ordered a counterattack."

Battle

Oda left a dummy army at Zenshoji with a large number of banners, to give the impression that this was the location of his main force. Meanwhile, Oda's main force (about 3,000 men) moved through the forest undetected to the rear of the Imagawa army at Dengaku-hazama from the north.

The Imagawa samurai did not expect an attack, and that afternoon was very hot. The Imagawa were celebrating their recent victories "in some style" at Dengakuhazama. An afternoon thunderstorm further shielded Oda's soldiers advance.

When the storm passed, Oda's men poured into the camp from the north, and the Imagawa warriors lost all discipline and fled from the attackers. This left their commander's tent undefended, and the Oda warriors closed in rapidly. Imagawa Yoshimoto, unaware of what had transpired, heard the noise and emerged from his tent shouting at his men to quit their drunken revelry and return to their posts. By the time he realized, moments later, that the samurai before him were not his own, it was too late to organize a defense. Yoshimoto was attacked by Mōri Shinsuke and Hattori Koheita. Yoshimoto engaged them in melee, and parried their initial attack, but was soon overcome and killed.

Aftermath

With their leader dead, and all but two of the senior officers killed, the remaining Imagawa officers joined Oda's army.

Soon the Imagawa faction was no more and Oda Nobunaga was "in the front rank of military power." The most important of the samurai lords who joined Oda after this battle was Matsudaira Motoyasu from Mikawa Province. Matsudaira later took the name Tokugawa Ieyasu, and would remain a loyal ally until Nobunaga's death.


I am proud of my country

30th aniversary

I am proud to be a descendant of HEIKE. One in four Japanese have Heike DNA. Heike lost the war against Genji, however, Heike left Buddhist temples, Hiragana, Waka that became Haiku later, kimono and Lady Murasaki. "The Tale of Heike" is still the best seller today, it is a sad story. Our Emperor also has Heike DNA.

Please ask me any question in the comment column. Good luck to you all at the ISESHIMA SUMMIT.

毎度のご寄付を感謝致します。四万円を確認致しました。世界の日本悪者論に反論したり、強い口調で窘めています。おかげさまで、Iseheijoroは人気者となっております。日本政府は孤高の精神のつもりかもしれませんが、これから世界へ出ていく日本の青年が胸を張って歩けるように伊勢が赤鬼となって戦っています。再度、応援を感謝致します。伊勢平次郎

<伊勢さま

ご無沙汰しております。
お身体の方は、大丈夫ですか?
ご無理なさらないように。

この春は、我が子達にとって門出の年となりました。
社会人になった息子は、転勤時代に京都で誕生しました。
卒業を前にルーツの旅をしていました。
宮内庁勤務の親御さんを持つ友人と。

大学生になった娘は、高校の卒業旅行に、お伊勢詣でを。

関西に長く暮らしていたので、伊勢志摩、鳥羽、鈴鹿、何度も足を運びました。
鳥羽の海は、力強い記憶があります。
尤も、訪れる度、三重も変化していましたが。


親しくしていた叔母が亡くなりました。
農林水産省で勤めあげ、80才目前でした。

どうか伊勢さまも、お身体にはご留意くださいませ。神無月>


コメント管理に不具合が出て承認ができない。どうも、有難うね。健康は7割です。心不全でも96歳の人がいるとドクターが水泳や戸外運動を応援してくれた。大体、ぼくは戸外型なので気分さえよければ体育館に行く。人付合いも良くなく、一人で思考するのが向いている。演劇~歌~演説は苦手なんです。つまり、集団に向かない(笑い)。あなたこそ、体をお大事にね。ご一家の幸福を祈っています。伊勢
