Chronicles of the Toyotomi Clan: The Flooding of Takamatsu Castle, 1867 - Fantastic view of the flooding of Takamatsu Castle, the floodwaters rising up the stone walls of the fortress at upper right. In 1592, Toyotomi Hideyoshi decided to end his siege of the stronghold by diverting a nearby river, flooding the castle and leading to the surrender of Shimizu Muneharu, who held the castle for the Mori Clan. Here, a warrior beats a large drum, the tails of his dragon patterned red vest fluttering in the breeze. A great view of this legendary samurai military tactic.
