Like today, Nobunaga Oda's vision was "Change". For his revolutionary "Change", he needed to destroy old regime. But at the same time, he did a lot of "Construction". His vision and work can be found in his city development planning and construction. "Gifu" is one of the cities in West Japan. He built almost modern city which is equipped with Sewage System. The other city system he built was "Free Market". Lewis Froys, Portugal Priest who visited Nobunaga describes the prosperity of Nobunaga's City, "Gifu", to be comparable to "Babylonia".

He had "Public Guest House" like we have today in White House or Tokyo Palace and entertained his guests. It is said that he liked guests from foreign countries or other part of Japan. He did change all the ancient regime and built the base of modern Japan.
Now thinking about Kenshin Uesugi and Nobunaga Oda, both of them had clear vision what they believed, and moved strongly ahead for the sake of their vision.
It appears to be what is most important is not contents of vision, but our belief or faith in the vision and continuous effort to promote it. It was not if Kenshin was right or Nobunaga was wrong, but they had different visions and they had lived and died for their vision. Can we?
