18. The Warning of Foreign Invasion Proves to have been Right (5)

             Japanese edition


After having remained silent for a while, Tokimune glared, and exploded in anger.

“Did you flinch? This personal letter is extremely rude. If our Japan became the dependency of Mongolia, what happens to us? Where is our peace and security while yielding to threats? Ignore it absolutely. Otherwise we only fight!”.

The contents of the personal letter are the same as what flung the written challenge against Tokimune that is a king. It is natural that he flies into a rage.

Yasumori shrank at spirit of Tokimune.

Yoritsuna smiles fearlessly as if is time when he finally plays his role.

Mitsunori could not but think in this way. ‘It is certain that the prediction of priest Nichiren will prove right in this’.

Since the regent made up his mind, Yasumori Adachi thought that it was unavoidable, and he directed subordinates unwillingly.

“At first send a commander to Kyushu. Let the Shinto shrine and Buddhist temple say grace for Mongolia extermination”.

Yoritsuna transmitted to subordinates immediately shrewdly, too.

“Must unify intention of Japan. The person who is against a policy of the Shogunate deals with a severe punishment. Hojo commands the whole country as a ruler of Japan now”.

Lay priest Yadoya gave instructions to other vassal people and followers, too.

“Treat the messenger politely. Let the observer force sneak into Korai. Report the status of Mongolia minutely”.

By the way, although the Shogunate asked the Imperial Court of Kyoto about this matter on February 7 of the next month, the Emperor does not have the capacity to do something. All was entrusted to the Kamakura Shogunate which was led by Tokimune.

That was ironical.

Hojo clan planned elimination of other clans and destroyed Miura and Wada of the influential family, and the enemy disappeared in the country. For building the autocracy, the young man Tokimune appeared long-awaited, but Mongolia had stood in the way there. If it is a samurai, anyone knows the terrible force of the Mongolia. It will be clear in future that a discussion happens over the correspondence with Mongolia.

The Imperial Court has kept very quiet since the fight of Zhokyu, but they will criticize the Shogunate beneath the surface of the water. The person who does not remain silent in the Shogunate either appears. The most dangerous is Tokisuke Hojo who is half older brother of Tokimune, and vassals who supports him. In particular, the Nagoe clan of the branch family in Hojo, had power among them.


Military Headquarters were crowded with military horses of toward Kyushu.

The vassals and followers make a line orderly and leave the gate.

The military commanders put hands together in the Hachiman Shrine and prayed. The soldiers either put hands together all.

Their clan prayed tearfully, too.

April, the Shogunate gave the Shrines and temples of the whole country an order for a prayer of the Mongolia defeat. The Imperial Court either prays for foreign country surrender on July 17. Japan held the actual feeling that there is a crisis in this way all together.

Though it is different at the times, this uneasiness that occurred unexpectedly declared war against the large United States 700 years later and might be the same as the people's mind that entered to the Pacific War.
