Sanada Yukimura, actual name : Sanada Nobushige, was one of the iconic Japan samurai warriors of the Sengoku period. In his early youth, he was sent as a hostage to the Uesugi and Toyotomi clans and gradually became a close retainer to Toyotomi Hideyoshi. He was resourceful and well versed in military strategy and tactics. He assisted his father to hold back Tokugawa Hidetada’s 38000 men at Ueda Castle with only 2500. And he assisted the Toyotomi clan, which was about to be extinguished, in the battle of Osaka against the Tokugawa army, which was several times larger than his own. He defeated the enemy’s front troops and almost killed Tokugawa leyasu. However, in the end he failed on the verge of success and was martyred for the Toyotomi clan. He is known as “The Number One Warrior in Japan”.
