Chapter Summary

On the first day of the First Month, outsiders were excused from presenting themselves. Nobunaga had decided to inspect only the horse guards who were in Azuchi, parading them from the West to the East Gate. All got themselves ready, but in the middle of the night it started to rain, continuing until the Hour of the Serpent. So there was no march past. Nobunaga ordered a riding ground to be constructed along the lakeside, to the north of the fortifications of Azuchi and west of the Matsubara ward. On New Year's Day, work commenced under the supervision of Suganoya Kuemon, Hori Kyūtarō, and Hasegawa Take.
