What did Japanese samurai look like and how did they fight? The "Nagashino Battle Flag Festival" is an event that reenacts that battle scene. In the year 1575, the Takeda army of over ten thousand men with a cavalry known all across the nation, and the Oda-Tokugawa allied army of more than thirty thousand men equipped with a large number of firearms fiercely fought on this land. This festival is held to console the spirits of the vassals on both sides who lost their lives in battle. The former battlefield is decorated with flags from both armies. At the parade where people dress up as the vassals, you will surely be surprised at the beautiful and colorful clothing. You should also check out how the teppotai rifle corps clad in armor and helmets fill matchlocks with gunpowder and fire the guns. It showcases samurai warriors at that time, and it certainly is interesting to watch.
