Storyline

A dramatized biography of the second of Japan's three legendary leaders. Rising from obscurity, Hideyoshi served under the command of Oda Nobunaga. With an extrodinary combination of intelligence, bravery and military skill, Hideyoshi rose to near-absolute power and greatly expanded upon Nobunaga's unification of Japan's warlords. This series also focused on Hideyoshi's personal life, particularly his relationships with his mother and his wife, and the pair's rivalry for influence over him.

Best Hideyoshi Ever Played
10 September 1999 | by (Oita, Japan) – See all my reviews

Naoto Takenaka plays the best Hideyoshi ever played. This is saying quite a lot, since this historical character has been played more often than most, always by the best.This was a one-year series produced by Japan's public broadcasting. The senior director was Rintaro Mayuzumi, director of "Rampo" also starring Takenaka. Too bad audiences out side of Japan will have such a hard time finding the video for this series. It really is quite good.
