【Who is Sanada Yukimura?】
If we look back on the life of Sanada Yukimura, his personality was so discreet in his 20s and he was under house arrest in his 30s.
When he beccame 40years old , he began to take a chance. As he was so tactical warrior, he was estimated well by the family of Toyotomi Hideyoshi.
The most famous battles are "Winter battle in Osaka" and "Summer battle in Osaka", both battles are the conflicts between Tokugawa family (the shogunate) and
Toyotomi family (after the death of Toyotomi Hideyoshi).
At that time the Tototomi family became so weaken but Sanada Yukimura battled to save the Toyotomi family.
His well known tactics during Winter battle in Osaka, was "Sanada maru", which is buliding the branch castle with soil and made several guard fence to protect
the Osaka main castle from enemies. This technique was remarkable and the name of Yukimura becomes so popular as a specialist of battle.
However, Yukimura lost at Summer battle in Osaka because of the weakbess of Toyotomi family.
Even though he lose his battle, a lot of japanese poeple love him.Why?
Because we can find the philosophy of Samurai in his life and Japanese people feel it's beutiful.
