Comments - Fantastic aerial view of Takamatsu Castle under water, with samurai inside the castle walls huddled on planking overlooking the rising floodwaters. In 1592, Toyotomi Hideyoshi decided to end his siege of the castle by diverting a nearby river, flooding the castle and leading to the surrender of Shimizu Muneharu, who held the castle for the Mori Clan. An incredible scene with terrific detail. A great view of this legendary samurai battle tactic.
