Meister Japan Sengoku Armor Series – Takeda Shingen
Takeda Shingen (武田 信玄, December 1, 1521 – May 13, 1573), of Kai Province, was a pre-eminent daimyō in feudal Japan with exceptional military prestige in the late stage of the Sengoku period.
Takeda Shingen was one of two of the most vicious Samurai War Lords to do battle in Japan, the other being Uesugi Kenshin. Over the years they would engage in combat a total of five times. Their fourth battle, which was at Kawanakajima, would be their major battle. Because of Takeda Shingen’s fierceness as a fighter, he was given the nickname “Tiger.” Uesugi Kenshin was referred to as the “Dragon” in his warring days as a Samurai. Thus the legendary battles of the Tiger and the Dragon were about to originate in Japan.
