UserWiki:Eric/Castles of the Hojo
by User:Eric (2017/07/20)
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.
|Abandoned by Hojo Ujitada on April 1.
|Hojo Ujikuni was lord of the castle when it fell on June 14 to a group including Maeda Toshiie, Uesugi Kagekatsu, Sanada Yukimura, and Honda Tadakatsu.
|Hojo Ujiteru fled to Odawara. His retainers put up a good defense against Maeda Toshiie, Uesugi Kagekatsu, Sanada Yukimura and others but the castle fell on June 23.
|Matsuyama Castle (Saitama)
|Narita Ujinaga, an ally of the Hojo, withstood attacks from Ishida Mitsunari until July 14.
