Honnoji Temple
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

Site where legendary warrior and ruler, Nobunaga Oda and his son, Nobutada, took their lives after they were ambushed by one of Nobunaga's traitorous subordinates, Akechi Mitsuhide, and his forces. In addition to his military exploits, Nobunaga permitted the practice of Christianity and tried to develop local economies by improving badly kept roads and abolishing barriers between provinces. The "Nobunaga Ki," a memorial service in his honor, is held annually on June 2 at the rebuilt Honnoji Temple, which had burned down at the time of Mitsuhide's assault. It is thought that some of Nobunaga's ashes have been divided and enshrined at this and two other sites, Amidaji Shrine and Kenkun Shrine. (bio by: Warrick L. Barrett)
