Background: While visiting castles around the Tokyo area I started to realize how many of them were related to the Hojo clan. As it turns out, the Hojo had quite an extensive network of castles throughout the area. I haven't researched this yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if the Hojo had the most extensive castle network and density of castles per area of any daimyo in Japan. Below are the castles on the site that were controlled by the Hojo or their allies when they were defeated by Hideyoshi in 1590. It is still a work in progress and I'll add castles as I visit them.
