Nakamura (bandit)

Nakamura was a bandit peasant during the 16th century Azuchi-Momoyama period in Japan. He was the leader of a gang of bandits that were stationed at a minor village called Ogurusu, which was near the area of battle during the Battle of Yamazaki of 1582. He is rumored to have killed the general Akechi Mitsuhide. According to this rumor, after Mitsuhide was defeated at Yamazaki, he passed through the village of Ogurusu. While riding through, he passed by Nakamura who was hiding in a bamboo grove. Nakamura killed Mitsuhide by thrusting his spear into him. This took place a mere thirteen days after Mitsuhide had arranged for the death of the famous Oda Nobunaga.
