An old battlefield that won the battle with the Heike army.
It's a park now, but it's a little-known place with few people!
The ancient Koshi road and Gokokuhachimangu, a nationally designated important cultural property, were nearby, and it was a very good place to take a walk.

What kind of place was that area in that era? Knowing the terrain is also important for the battle.
Invite the opponent out on purpose.
It is also important that you do not exert your opponent's strength.
