Interesting facts about this location

Siege of Takatenjin (1574)

The first siege of Takatenjin occurred in 1574, when it was attacked by the forces of Takeda Katsuyori. The garrison was commanded by Ogasawara Nagatada, who held the fortress for Tokugawa Ieyasu. Nagatada surrendered to the Takeda clan, and became a Takeda retainer, receiving the Omosu District of Suruga Province as a fief, where he would relatively remain neutral within up until the Invasion of Kai Province during 1582.

Siege of Takatenjin (1581)

The second siege of Takatenjin came only six years after Takeda Katsuyori took the fortress. This second siege lasted several months, and ended with the fortress falling in Nobunaga's hands. This was quite an advantageous event for Oda Nobunaga, as it weakened his enemies; the battle of Temmokuzan the following year would come to be known as Takeda Katsuyori's last stand. Nounaga sent Mori Nagahide to capture his fortress and the siege ended within four months.

Sagara Oil Field

Sagara Oil Field is located in Makinohara, Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. Crude oil was discovered at Sagara Village in May 1873, and hand-pumping operations began almost immediately.

The Sagara field was the only producing oil field on Japan's Pacific coast, and was the first in Japan to use oil pumps.
