Iguiba / Les Paterson
This place near the Battle of Muraki landmark is called Iguiba.
This is the area where Nobunaga’s soldiers celebrated their big victory
at the Battle of Muraki 1554.
I was fortunate enough to visit Iguiba last fall with Mr. Okehazama (Wataru Kajino) and
Yukio and Akitsugu Kajino. This was an important victory over the Imagawa since
six years later would be the Battle of Okehazama.
