  Matsunaga Hisahide
Matsunaga Hisahide (松永 久秀 1510-1577) was a daimyo of Japan.
In 1565 the guardians and Hisahide worked together and dispatched an army to capture Ashikaga Yoshiteru, the shogun, who was then either murdered or forced to commit suicide, he was replaced by the child Yoshihide and the shogun's brother Yoshiaki fled.
Initially the forces of Hisahide were unsuccessful and his apparent destruction of the buddhist Todaiji temple in Nara was considered an act of infamy.

 Matsunaga Hisahide
Hisahide was later tasked with the conquest of Yamato province, an endeavor that made him, by 1564, essentially an independent daimyo.
In 1566 Matsunaga’s warriors were defeated outside Sakai, and Hisahide himself failed in attempts some time later to reduce the Miyoshi presence in Kwatchi.
Matsunaga did prove useful over the next few years, serving Nobunaga in his wars with the Asai and Asakura and against, of course, the Miyoshi.

In 1566 fighting started between Hisahide and the Miyoshi.
Defeated but defiant Hisahide committed suicide, he ordered his head destroyed to prevent it becoming a trophy (in which his son, Matsunaga Kojiro grabbed Matsunaga's head and jumped off the castle wall with his sword through his throat) and also destroyed a priceless tea kettle (Hiragumo) that Nobunaga coveted before he died.

 Honoo no Mirage
A historical teapot belonging to Matsunaga Hisahide (松永久秀), who was a renowned collector of tea ceremony sets, weapons et al.
It was coveted by Oda Nobunaga, and when Hisahide revolted against him and was defeated, he sent word that he would pardon Hisahide if Hiragumo were given to him in exchange.
It is said that Hiragumo later became a tsukumogami youkai, noted for haunting the environs of Shigisan: it visits houses at night in spider-like form, in order to drink standing water and to consume smaller youkai.

However, Matsunaga was able to come to terms with Nobunaga by giving him a special tea ceremony item, both of them enjoying tea very much.
Matsunaga then turned his attention to his old allies the Miyoshi and attempted to consolidate his power over them.
And we do see the all important tea item, the one which he legendarily took with him to his grave: the Hiragumo, or "Spider Tea Kettle." And it is the Spider Tea Kettle which features prominently in the story, almost becoming a character in and of itself.

During this period the rulers in Yamato came from Kofukuji, such as Tsutsui Junsho ] (1523-1550) and his son, Tsutsui Junkei (1549-1584), who were the heads of Kofukuji's warrior monks or sohei attached to Kofukuji's sub-temple, the Seishinin.
They engaged in almost continuous battles with Matsunaga Hisahide (1510-1577), who had advanced himself from the position of steward to the Miyoshi family.
In addition to this demand for swords from the Tsutsui of Kofukuji, there was also Kaku Zenbo Hoin Inei (1521-1607), who was the founder of the Hozoin School of spear fencing.

His brother, Yoshiteru, had been previous shogun, and completely under the control of a couple of malicious (and incidentally Christian) courtiers Miyoshi Chokei and Matsunaga Hisahide, who eventually killed him so that they could install his much younger cousin as an even more controllable puppet.
Nobunaga’s next — successful — proxy campaign was against Miyoshi Chokei and Matsunaga Hisahide who were defeated at the Battle of Sakai in 1567.
This battle is noteworthy because of the large numbers of Christian samurai on both sides, who took Mass together before the fighting.

 Seeing the Past: Out of the Treasure House: How Tea Utensils Inform the Japanese Perception of Historicity - *** THIS ...
For example, when the victorious warlord Oda Nobunaga (1534–1582) entered Kyōto in 1568 to help assert the questionable claims of the fifteenth Ashikaga shōgun, Yoshiaki (1537–1597), the leader of the opposition, Matsunaga Hisahide (1510–1577), prudently surrendered a famous thick tea container called Tsukumo4 to Nobunaga.
The gesture of appeasement saved Hisahide’s head and allowed him to retain his fief.
Thus, even though Nobunaga was putatively Yoshiaki’s henchman, Hisahide’s gift made it clear that the warlord was the real heir to the shogunate.

Said castle was important because it incorporated many advances in castle building technology (a certain type of common wall structure is called "Tamon-tsukuri" after this castle), and because Toudai-ji's Daibutsu-den was burned because Matsunaga Hisahide didn't want any other buildings near his castle.
Went to Koufuku-ji, saw some really old, nifty statues.
