Does anyone have any info on 町 as a counter of land space? I was reading the Shinchokoki and it describes the Takeda and Oda lines in terms of X 町 long. Not having any dictionaries that cover kogo, need some assitance. Thanks!!

That's one Chou (equal to 60 ken), or just a bit less than 360 feet.

you da man!

edit: It just hit me, since I only put the kanji, as to why you wrote it in romaji. I'm thinking "why did Tatsu do that, I know it's ちょう, I just wrote it..."

I knew it was used (and read as ちょう) as a counter, just didn't know the actual distance. Thanks for the help!
