Oda Nobunaga's artefacts at Nagoya castle, including the ultimate torture for medieval Japanese's noble travelers: the super-small litter.

 

 

 

 

 

Oda Nobunaga's crucifix-shaped candlestick; he collected a lot of such things that caucasian Catholic priests brought for him from Portugal, Spain, and Italy. They didn't mean anything but curious goods to him. Don't assume that he was 'interested in Christianity'.

Oda Nobunaga's clock. It doesn't tell time the way universal clocks of today do; the 16th century Japanese way of telling time is (just in case you haven't noticed) maddening to 21st-centurian creatures -- "No, don't come by at the hour of the snake," your buddy would have said in Oda Nobunaga's days; "I won't be home until the third of the hour of the ox!"

 

Oda Nobunaga's collexion of trinkets had political significance, that's why Toyotomi Hideyoshi imitated it during his reign between 1582-1599. Click here for complete story about the collexion's sociopolitical value.  

 

   
No kidding. This is the variety of flowers grown in Gifu, some called it 'Nobunaga Rose'.
