Chapter Summary

Toward the end of last year, Nobunaga appointed Sakai Bunsuke [Toshisada], Kōno Tōzō [Ujiyoshi], Sasaoka Hachiemon, and Yamaguchi Tarōbyōe his commissioners in charge of road construction in the provinces. In no time at all, their work was finished. On the 28th of the Eleventh Month, Nobunaga transferred the headship of his house to Akita Jō no Suke. Nobunaga had truly exerted himself to the utmost for three decades. He had built a residence encrusted with gold and silver [at Gifu]. Now he passed it on, along with the great sword Hoshikiri, once the property of Soga Gorō and the rest of the priceless implements that he had collected, the inestimable treasures of the Three Countries. He also handed over the Province of Owari together with the Province of Mino to his son. Keeping only his tea ceremony implements for himself, Nobunaga moved to the private residence of Sakuma Uemon.
