Re: Daimyos (Head Lords of Domain) of the ASAIs in the Age of Provincial Wars & the Northern Region

I roughly read the book today.
They say that the ASAIs’ three generation in the 16th century are very popular still now among the people in this region, since the lords were originally born and grown here and did a very good administration for the people in those days.
I was most impressed to read the sentences below, which is written about the last scene; Oichi (お市, an ex-wife of Nagamasa ASAI) sent a letter to Hideyoshi, asking him to look after her three daughters (the most famous “three sisters” in Japanese history), and sent them off at the gate of their castle, in order to say the farewell word. She was awefully beautiful then and looked as if she were just 22 years old or so, actually 36 though, the old document wrote. (Soon after then, Oichi and her husband Katsuie killed themselves, with death poems.)
