Izumo no Okuni, was the founder of kabuki theater, and this statue is located along the Kamo River in Kyoto. Yes, she was a woman, as early kabuki was performed by all-female troupes. Relatively early on in the Tokugawa Shogunate, a law was put into effect that banned females and young boys from being kabuki performers, making it an exclusive male profession.

This is a statue of the famed samurai commander, Sanada Yukimura, who led the pro-Toyotomi forces against the Tokugawa during the Siege of Osaka in 1614-1615. This statue can be found on the grounds of the Sankō Shrine next to Sanadayama Park in Osaka. The area is where the Sanada-maru defensive position stood during the Winter Siege of Osaka.

Honda Tadakatsu was probably the quintessential Mikawa samurai. A loyal vassal of Tokugawa Ieyasu, he served in all the major campaigns that lead to Ieyasu’s rise to power. Respected by both friends and foes, he was one “bad ass” on the battlefield. In merit of his service, he was granted the fief of Okazaki, taking up residence in the castle that was Ieyasu’s birthplace.
