Chapter Summary

Lord Nobunaga greeted the New Year at Mount Azuchi in Ōmi Province. On the 8th of the First Month, Nobunaga ordered his pages, horse guards, and archers to haul more than three hundred and fifty cut rocks from Mabuchi to Mount Azuchi. On the 7th of the Third Month, Lord Nobunaga had his headquarters camp set up at Koikeda, while his soldiers encamped on all four sides of Itami. On Tenshō 7, the Year of Earth Junior and the Rabbit, Fifth Month, 27th day, at the Hour of the Dragon, The prelate from the Kanto opened his fan, got on his feet, and did a little dance. Nichikō of the Chōmyōji, defeated by the word sublimity, was beaten up by the spectators, who even tore the eight scrolls of his precious Lotus Sutra into shreds. In a flash, the Lotus adherents scattered in all directions.
