Topic: Hojo Ujiyasu

  Hojo Ujiyasu - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Hōjō Ujiyasu (北条氏康)(1515–1571) was the son of Hōjō Ujitsuna and a great daimyō (warlord) of the Odawara Hojo clan.
Two of Ujiyasu's seven sons fought Takeda at the battle of Mimasetoge in 1569, ending the first of the Takeda campaigns against the Hōjō.
Ujiyasu died in 1571, passing on the Hōjō domains and the problem of Takeda Shingen to his eldest son Hōjō Ujimasa.

 Hôjô Ujiyasu
Ujiyasu, considered by some scholars to be the greatest of the Hôjô Daimyô, fought his first battle in 1530 (Ozawahara) and 15 years later won one of the great encounters of the 16th Century.
Ujiyasu, for years his father Ujitsuna's understudy, assumed control of the Hôjô after Ujitsuna's death in 1541 and faced an Uesugi clan that, while weakened, was determined to halt the Hôjô's drive into the Kanto.
Ujiyasu came to Kawagoe's rescue, and in a brilliant night attack (one of the most notable examples of night fighting in samurai history) Ujiyasu and Tsunanari crushed the Uesugi and their allies.

Warfare continued almost non-stop, however, and the retirement of Ujitsuna in 1560 and handing of power to his son Ujiyasu was seen as a green light for attack by the Hojo's enemies.
Unlike Hideyoshi's army, which was composed purely of bushi, and had plentiful guns and cannons, the Hojo army was made up of both bushi and farmers, the later of which were often equipped with hoes, spades, and scythes, and had little battle training.
Odawara, slowly developing over thousands of years into what, under the Hojo family during the Warring States period, was the center of power and development of the Kanto plane, was struck the double blow in the Edo period of the financial difficulties which crippled the entire nation, as well as constant, debilitating natural disasters.

Also known as, Hojo Soun, his origin is unknown because some records state he was a native of Kyoto, others state that he was from Bitchu, and others explain that he came from Ise province.
Hojo Soun instigated a revolution in the province of Izu that resulted in land gained for himself.
He later changed his name to Hojo Soun; even though he was not related to the family who were the past rulers of Japan, he married off his son to a distant descendant of the original Hojo.

Heading a campaign against the Hojo, Kenshin was successful in taking a number of castles from the clan, which ended in his striking against the Odawara Castle in Sagami Province.
With both Takeda Shingen and Hojo Ujiyasu dead, Kenshin was no longer blocked off from this realm of expansion.
So, when the death of a Noto lord in the area sparked up confusion and conflict, Kenshin was quick to use the opportunity, taking land from the weakened clan which put him in a position to threaten Nobunaga and his allies.

Yoritomo's son Yoriiye was made shogun in 1202, and the next year the director (shikken) of the Mandokoro was succeeded by Hojo Tokimasa of the Taira clan; thereafter until 1333 that chief political office remained in the Hojo family.

Both Shingen and Hojo Ujiyasu are said to have spoken highly of their rival in Echigo and he is certainly one of the most beloved figures to emerge from the sengoku period, a sort of Japanese Robert E. Lee.

The Hojo family's rule gradually expanded to the eastern part of Bushu in the days of his son Ujitsuna and his grandson Ujiyasu, and the Chiba family came under the control of the Hojos by doom of battle.

Lo interesante de este relato es que Hojo Soun (o Ise Shinkuro) no procedía de ningún lugar y, con el paso de tres generaciones, él y su familia se habían repartido unos dominios significativos.
Los Hojo habían sido los Shoguns de Japón, trayendo paz y prosperidad e incluso expulsaron a las hordas mongolas.
De hecho, el fundador del clan, Hojo Soun, fue un humilde aventurero Samurai que derrocó el viejo orden en su provincia natal e hizo suyo un antiguo nombre.
