Chapter Summary

The previous winter Matsunaga Uemon no Suke had been pardoned by Nobunaga and handed over Tamon Castle. On the 8th of the First Month, Matsunaga Danjō went down to Gifu in Mino Province, where he expressed his gratitude to Nobunaga by presenting him with the peerless sword Fudō Kuniyuki. Earlier, Matsunaga had presented another famous sword, Yagen Tōshirō. It became an open secret that the shogun covertly planned to revolt against Nobunaga. The reason was that last year Nobunaga had forcefully reproached Yoshiaki in a remonstrance, putting forward seventeen articles to charge the shogun with intolerable misfeasance. When Nobunaga admonished the shogun, his golden words offended the ears of Yoshiaki. Yoshiaki sent troops to Imakatata and built a stronghold at Ishiyama as a base of operations. Nobunaga ordered Shibata Shuri no Suke, Akechi Jubyoe no Jo, Niwa Gorōzaemon no Jō, and Hachiya Hyōgo no Kami to drive out Yoshiakis forces.
