Takeda Shingen and Uesugi Kenshin were both descended from great families and were highly skilled tacticians.

The Takeda were far and away the most powerful and ambitious clan in Japan, known for their political, economic, and administrative skills as well as martial adeptness.

 Takeda Shingen Shogun Warrior Detailed Statue
Takeda Shingen (1521-1573) has been described as the prime example of the Warring States period daimyo in that he was tremendously successful in accomplishing limited, regional goals (expansion of his domains) by means of a series of temporary alliances which were quickly broken or reformed according to the need of the moment.
Regional success was perhaps all Shingen ever had in mind; unlike the three men who unified Japan, Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi and Tokugawa Ieyasu, he did not exhibit the long-range vision or strategic wisdom necessary in the confused events of the time.
Shingen and the fall of the Takeda house are featured in the Akira Kurosawa movie, Kagemusha (Shadow Warrior).

The daimyô of that clan was Ujizane, the incompetent son of the late Imagawa Yoshimoto (killed in 1560 by Oda Nobunaga), whose political ineptness had already cost the Imagawa their Matsudaira (Tokugawa) vassals and Mikawa province.
Just prior to his death, Shingen had called from his bed for Yamagata Masakage, one of ablest men, to raise his flags at Seta Bridge (the traditional eastern gate to Kyôto).
Shingen also had to keep an eye on both the Imagawa and Hôjô clans to his south and southeast, which no doubt contributed to the caution he generally displayed when facing Kenshin at Kawanakajima.
