After the Kyotoku Incident, the brothers Chiba Sanatane and Chiba Yoritane fled the Shimousa region (modern day Chiba Prefecture) to the Musashi Region north of Tokyo. Sanatane built Ishihama Castle and Yoritane built Akatsuka Castle. The Akatsuka Chiba clan became loyal vassals of the Hojo and continued until the fall of the Hojo in 1590.
