Description: Takeda Katsuchiyo was the childhood name of Takeda Shingen, one of the most powerful daimyo of the Sengoku period (1467-1590). When he was a child, Katsuchiyo used a wooden horse to practice horse riding. One night when the moon was bright he heard the wooden horse say, "Katsuchiyo! Which are you better at, the art of war or the art of fencing?" Katsuchiyo swung his sword at the horse, answering, "I'm good at both. Observe my fencing skills!" The next morning he found a old raccoon dead at the place where he had swung his sword, realising that the voice had come from the trickster raccoon all along.
