Oda Nobunaga

The Man who ALMOST United Japan

Welcome! This site is a small, personal effort to catalog and structure information about Oda Nobunaga. It's an amatuer site with an amatuer creator. Unfortunately, recently it's also been somewhat neglected. Hopefully there will me updates more often now.

The site is basically unstructured; it has a few pages based around major categories of information. Please feel free to drop me a line if you have any comments about the site. It's not much, but I hope you can find something to enjoy!

What is available?

The kamon page which describes Nobunaga's several family symbols.
The Family Tree pages show the roots of the Oda clan and begin to spell out how Nobunaga comes on the scene.
The "Everything Else" page which hosts a few legends and various Nobunaga tales.
The "About" page which describes why I started this site in the first place a couple of years ago.
A gif file of the "Song of Atsumori", which Nobunaga recited on several occasions including before the Battle of Okehazuma.
A very preliminary "Names" page which will aim to describe and explain how personal names were created and used in Nobunaga's time. For instance it's probably the case that no person during his lifetime actually referred to him as "Nobunaga".
Another very preliminary Nanboku Dynasties page.
