Chapter Summary

From the middle decade of the First Month, Korezumi Gorōzaemon began construction work at Mount Azuchi in Ōmi Province on Nobunagas orders. Nobunaga gave plots of residential land at the foot of Mount Azuchi to each member of his horse guards. Nobunaga determined that on the first day of the Fourth Month work was to start on the construction of stone walls, around the area of the mountain reserved for his castle. He intended to order a residence to be built for him in Kyoto, Nobunaga gave instructions to his son, on how to carry on with the work at Azuchi. On Tenshō 4, the Year of Fire Senior and the Rat, Eleventh Month, 21st day, Nobunaga was again advanced to high office, being named Minister of the Middle (Naidaijin). Nobunaga assigned landed estates to important members of the regency lineage and the rest of the high nobility.
