Siege of Osaka shown in great detail in late 17th century maps

FUKUYAMA, Hiroshima Prefecture--A cache of documents donated to the Hiroshima Prefectural Museum of History include some of the largest and most elaborate illustrations of battle formations for a conflict that consolidated the unification of Japan under the Tokugawa Shogunate.

The depictions concern two military campaigns from 1614 to 1615 during the Siege of Osaka where forces led by Tokugawa Ieyasu wiped out the rival Toyotomi clan that had threatened to upset his reign.

Experts said the operation map for the winter campaign is especially interesting as it provides valuable details of the battle not only around the Osaka Castle but also in peripheral areas.
