Comment This noboribata shows 3 characters; Empress Jingu (the largest image), Takenouchi no Sukune (the old man) and the future Emperor Ojin (the baby). A good story but the fictitious legend has it that the warrior Empress Jingu (c. AD 169–269) led an army in an invasion of Korea and returned to Japan victorious after three years.
