Son of Nobunaga Oda, legendary warrior and ruler, who distinguished himself in politics, economics, religion and cultural pursuits. He and his father were treacherously ambushed by Mitsuhide Akechi, one of his subordinates, and his forces while they were staying at the Honnoji Temple during a visit to Kyoto. Rather than surrender to this traitor general, Nobunaga and Nobutade took their own lives as the temple burned during the siege. It is reported that priests quietly gathered their ashes and enshrined them in the Amidaji Temple. The graves of Nobunaga and Nobutade and those of more than 120 supporters are located within the temple grounds. "Nobunaga Ki," a memorial service in his honor is held for him annually on June 2 at the rebuilt Honnoji Temple. The Kenkun Jinja(Shrine) was founded in 1869 by the Meiji Emperor to extol his exploits. The Funaoka Matsuri(Festival) is held there each October 19, to commemorate the day Nobunaga entered Kyoto, aiming to end a century of strife It is thought that some of their ashes have been divided and enshrined at each of the sites.
