18. The Warning of Foreign Invasion Proves to have been Right (1)

             Japanese edition


17-year-old Tokimune was alone and matched his hands with the stupa tablet of father Tokiyori and prayed. It is quiet one room of Military Headquarters.

Tokiyori had died five years before. He was 32 years old.

His child Tokimune became the eighth regent at only 18 years old, on March 5, 1268. Tokiyori of father became the fifth regent at 20 years old, but Tokimune took office as the regent earlier than father for two years.

He is a leader of the Hojo clan, and Tokimune must dominate as the Japanese ruler. He was not able to escape from here. He must endure the hardship which is called the hard lot.

Tokimune showed it without hesitating about sad thought in the room where nobody was.

“Oh, father, please guard our Hojo. Japan was peaceful thanks to father until now. However, the war will happen by the fate of the world of the samurai by all means. Still less the vassals, even in our clan, there is a person plotting treason. Here is the world to compete for up to parents, brothers, husband and wife not to mention the lord and servant now. I am being reliant to only the power of father for avoiding this".

Yoritsuna Tairano was the other side of the door and waited.

“Our lord, it's time for you to go”.

Tokimune braces himself and goes ahead through the long corridor toward the hall straight. Yoritsuna followed him hastily.

Samurais lined up closely in the hall. Everyone wore the helmet and suit of armor and were waiting Tokimune in the best dress appropriate for the fine stage of this day.

Tokisuke of the half older brother has been already sitting down at the higher seat.

Delegates of the vassal sit down on a farther seat, and the samurai of subordinates waits in the rear.

Their thought is not same.

There were the vassals who respected Hojo deeply, to the contrary, there was the person who did not know what to do with anger in the present conditions just like thee lder brother Tokisuke who was the lord only of the name even the Hojo clan.

In addition, there were the believers of Nichiren sect here.

It is Shijo Kingo who is the subordinates of Hojo (Nago'e) Mitsutoki of the branch family in Hojo. There is Toki jonin who is the vassal of Chiba governor. In addition, Ota Jomyo of the official of the supreme court was there.

Furthermore, the military unit of servants and the subordinates holding the halberd wait in the very large garden outside the hall to overcrowding.

Tokimune came up.

A shout of joy broke out from the military unit.

All vassals stood up soon and lowered their head. However, only Tokisuke of the older brother is a haughty mien without standing up.

Tokimune sits down to a folding stool, and Yoritsuna Taira was late, sits down near him.

The most powerful vassal, Yasumori Adachi stood up and stepped to side of Tokimune.

“We perform regent assumption of office ceremony for lord Tokimune of governor of Sagami country than this. Everyone, be quiet”.

There is a person despising Yasumori in a low voice.

“He is simply the brother-in-law of lord Tokimune, acts big”.

Yasumori continued a declamation in support of Tokimune of a new regent while these conversations did not reach his ear.

“Lord Tokimune who was celebrated for bravery since he was young received a trace of late lord Tokiyori, took office as a regent. Everyone. Support him who is a boss of this young Kamakura!”.

A samurai group accepted it soon.

“Similarly, in Lord Tokisuke who is a son, he was appointed to the northern chief of the administrative and judicial agency in Rokuhara, Kyoto”.

All members were surprised and made a stir.
