This event has ended.

When Japan’s most notorious warlord, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, commenced rule over newly-united Japan from Nagahama Castle, the region of Kita Omi (present day northern Shiga prefecture) became home to many of his vassals. This exhibition focusses on the most important of these vassals who supported Hideyoshi in some of his most crucial reforms and decisive battles. This includes Ishida Mitsunari, who was appointed one of the top administrators (or bugyo) in government at the tender age of 26, orchestrated the important “Taiko Kenchi” nationwide land survey for tax purposes; the “Seven Spears of Shizugatake,” Wakizaka Yasuharu and Katagiri Katsumoto; and others.
