You can actually experience the remains of the battles of the many warlords mentioned at the memorial museum. There is also a walking course that follows the stories of the seven warlords that represent Sekigahara, and by looking down on the battlefield from each warlord’s position, you can see the scenery that they saw at the time. One of the attractions of the Sekigahara Battlefield is that you can not only see exhibits that make full use of the latest technology, but also walk through it yourself and see and experience it with your own eyes.
