  Onin War - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
After the Onin War, the Ashikaga bakufu completely fell apart; for all practical purposes, the Hosokawa family was in charge and the Ashikaga shoguns became their puppets.
From the close of the Onin War, this type of civil strife, either vassals striving to conquer their daimyo or succession disputes drawing in outside daimyo, was endemic all throughout Japan.
So the Warring States period (which is the Chinese term borrowed by the Japanese in calling this period "sengoku jidai"), really wasn't a "warring states" period at all, but a "warring warlords" period.

 Warring States Japan
In fact, a large part of the civil wars fought during the Ashikaga shogunate involved neighboring warlords choosing up sides whenever a succession to a warlordship was in dispute.
It looked increasingly like war would break out right in the shogun's capital, and the Yoshimasa realized that if such a war broke out, the entire country would plunge into war because the shogun, occupied with a war in his own capital, would be seen as powerless to control regional conflicts.
The shogun declared Yoshimi to be a rebel and the Onin War then became a clash between the shogun (supported by Hosokawa) and the shogun's brother (supported by Yamana).
