    History Club - Sengoku Jidai

    The first month we're gonna be looking at the Sengoku Jidai period in Japan, heres a brief look at what the topic

    The Sengoku Jidai period (1467 – 1603) is a period in Japanese history marked by social upheaval, political intrigue and near-constant military conflict.

    Japanese historians named it after the otherwise unrelated Warring States period in China. It came to an end when all political power was unified under the Tokugawa shogunate
    Post anything you like about it in this thread, Im going to mainly be on the look out for youtube videos I can watch, Ill share them here and then post my thoughts in the thread. You guys can do the same or you can post articles, stories, podcasts etc.

    I found a pretty cool set of videos that gives a brief introduction on the period though, if you guys wanna check it out

    Well lets start by discussing Oda.

    Why was he able to become so popular?

    Thanks to Myst~

    It will be fun to learn about an unfamiliar topic. I will contribute when I have the time.

    I've watched the videos but I'll need more information to provide any contribution and let the info sink in from the videos I've just watched.

    Ive watched the first video so far, later on tonight Ill be making footnotes of it and Ill post them here. I find it easier to take information in if I write down and pick out the key points of what Ive watched, its a better reference point as well

    I'm starting to get a handle on some of the names now.

    This Oda Nobunaga dude is a total badass.

    And man, this was the era of Miyamoto Musashi?

    Heian and Edo > Sengoku tbh

    But the sengoku period i would say is definitely most interesting for it's Economic boom

    Plus I also have a deep hatred for Oda because of what he did to Ichijōdani

    Yeah I didnt realise that either, I cant wait to read up more about him. His life story is a topic in itself. Id be surprised if this set of videos covered it, though once I get a better grasp of the era then Ill start looking closer at individuals in that time period

    It wasn't the Era of Niten that was the Tokugawa era aka the era after the Azuchi–Momoyama period

    They were entertaining and interesting.

    I knew someone was going to put up EX vids.

    Have all of you guys finished the videos? Let get to discussing.

    Oda Nobunaga seems like he was a pretty messed up dude to be honest. How is he usually received in Japan? Do people have mixed feelings about him?
