Once I passed the beech forest hiking track entrance, I entered territory that I'd never been to before. I had no idea at all what lay in front of me. While enjoying the autumn leaves, I also got to enjoy a downhill. This video is of the first part of the downhill. I uploaded it as is, without editing it.
By chance, I have stumbled across the place where Gracia Hosokawa lived in seclusion from 1582 for 2 years. I took this photo of her statue, located in the park behind Miyazu City Office, on December 29th, 2013.
to Wikipedia's entry for Gracia Hosokawa
Hosokawa Tadaoki's wife, Tamako. The 3rd daughter of Mitsuhide Aketchi, was born in 1563. In 1578, when 16 and by order of Nobunaga Oda, she married Tadaoki, the heir of Yusai (Fujitaka) Hosokawa who was lord of Tango's Tanabe Castle (present day Maizuru). In August 1852, her father, Mitsuhide rebelled against Nobunaga in the Honno-ji incident. Mitsuhide asked Tadaoki to ally himself with him, but Tadaoki declined and sent Tamako away into confinement, and he himself joined Hideyoshi Hashiba (Toyotomi) and fought Mitsuhide at the Battle of Yamazaki. After the death of Tamako's biological father, Mitsuhide, her retainers recommended that she kill herself, but she didn't accept this saying "I am the wife of Tadaoki, and it would betray my duty as his wife to decide such a thing without listening to my husband's commands". Through the days of heartache, she spent 2 years here. Hideyoshi showed compassion, and Tadaoki met Tamako as his wife again.
After this Tamako became a christian and was baptized as Gracia. On top of Tadataka and Tadaaki, she had 3 other children. Her husband, Tadaoki, joined the Eastern armies led by Ieyasu Tokugawa at the Battle of Sekigahara. In his absence, Ishida's troops surrounded Hosokawa's Osaka residence where Tamako was staying and demanded that she go to Osaka Castle as a hostage. Thinking "If I go to Osaka Castle as a hostage, it will hinder my warrior husband", she set fire to the residence and died a courageous death. She was 38 years old on that summer's day.
Her dying haiku poem
[People are like flowers, I will die without hesitation]
Colored by a strange fate, the story of Tamako as a single flower that bloomed in the Warring Period and who sacrificed her life for her husband has been passed down to the present day.
