The sengoku period daimyo often referred to as the one-eyed dragon, Date Masamune. He controlled the area that is now known as Sendai in the northeastern portion of Japan. Although he played a large role in the Korean invasions under Hideyoshi, he allied himself with the Tokugawa after Hideyoshi’s death. Apart from being a fearless warrior, he was also known for his compassion and loyalty.
Osaka-jo is a re-creation of what was once a much larger complex and home to Toyotomi Hideyoshi, one of the three great unifiers of Japan. Prior to this area being Osaka castle, it was the site of the Hongan-ji citadel, a nearly impenetrable fortess of the monks who unwisely went up against Oda Nobunaga. The donjon area you see today dates back to 1931, while the original Osaka-jo was completed in 1586. It was destroyed or damaged and re-built several times between 1615 and the days of WWII.

Pronounced "Dah-teh". Quite an imposing fellow. He only had one eye, but all paintings and sculptures have him with both.
