Chapter Summary

On the 5th of the Third Month, Lord Nobunaga set out for a campaign in northern Ōmi. He encamped at Akasaka and moved his camp to Yokoyama the next day. The samurai of northern Ōmi had insisted repeatedly that they would give battle if Nobunaga attacked Yogo and Kinomoto, as he had to cross difficult terrain there. Encountering no opposition, on the 9th Nobunaga withdrew his men to Yokoyama. Nobunagas life guards from the provinces of Owari, Mino, and Ōmi were exempted from construction duties and did not participate. The groundbreaking ceremony was held on the 24th of the Third Month. Nobunaga had a roofed mud wall built. At each section of the work site, he set up a decorated stage on which boys and youths played flutes, stick drums, and hand drums, cheering on those charged with the work, and a good time was had by all.
