Kuroda Kanbei was born in 1546. He was a legendary strategist for Hideyoshi Toyotomi. When his ex-lord Kodera Masamoto betrayed Oda Nobunaga, Kuroda Kanbei tried to make him quit, but he was deceived by Kodera Masamoto. Kuroda Kanbei was kept in confinement for more than a year. He had an ugly bruise on his head from his imprisonment in the dungeon of Arioka Castle. His left leg was also damaged, which made walking and riding difficult. Then he became a strategist for Toyotomi Hideyoshi.
A brilliant strategist, he was a highly respected warrior, known for his quick wit, bravery, and loyalty. In addition, he was a master of the construction of Himeji castle. This beautiful white castle is now a world heritage.
