So, let's start with some recollection of past events, and a list of the upcoming events scheduled for January and February.
On December 21 the taxi company of Gifu Nihon Taxi presented a special "wrapping" dedicated to the 450th Anniversary.
I also found out that the company offers a "taxi course" dedicated to Dosan and Nobunaga, focused on sites of interest.
On December 25 the first part of the collaboration between Gifu Castle and the anime Nobunaga no Shinobi was concluded and with the new year the second part involving voice actress Inori Minase just started.
The author was late and couldn't get the present for the successful mission, but on this account you can get a view of the cute strap available.
Partially unrelated, if you're a fan of Nobunaga no Shinobi and you happen in Tokyo, you may fancy the idea of visiting Mononopu Sengoku-themed Maid Cafe, that offers a menu inspired to the anime characters. The event will end of January 9.
The real opening ceremony of the 450th Anniversary though was during the hatsuhinode of Gifu Castle on January 1.
From January 1 to January 3, a special "Tenka Fubu" seal was presented to the first 100 visitors (per day) of Gifu castle.
The collaboration between Gifu and the videogame Sengoku Musou will start on January 13.
The exhibition will focus on the characters native of Mino plus Nobunaga.
The talk show event featuring the videogame's voice actors of Nobunaga and Nouhime, Kosugi Jurouta and Suzuki Mariko, is scheduled for February 26.
During the exhibition there will be a sale of limited edition goods, too. Check the website of the collaboration for further infos.
Partially unrelated, if you're a fan of Kosugi Jurouta, you may be intrigued by the fact that the audioguide of the current Sengoku Jidai: A Century of Dreams exhibition features the option of Nobunaga's voice too. Thanks to Irene who reported me about this ^_^
On February 5 is the time for a calligraphy performance celebrating the new year.
Also, as Les told us already, the next Nobunaga-gaku Forum is scheduled for February 25.
Then, let's end the month with some laughs.
And well, this is all for winter :) See you again on Spring with news and further events!
