HOJO Ujinao

HOJO Ujinao was the second son of Hojo Ujimasa and the fifth head of the Hojo (Go-Hojo) s who ruled Sagami, current Kanagawa. After his father succeeded his grandfather Ujiyasu, the relationship with the Takedas was improved and the Hojos allied with some other daimyos. He succeeded Ujimasa who retired in 1580 but continued to retain the real power.

After ODA Nobunaga was killed by AKECHI Mitsuhide in 1582, the Hojos fought against TAKIGWAWA Kazumasu, vassal of Nobunaga over the territory ruled by TAKEDA Katsuyori and controlled by Nobunaga after the fall of the Takedas. But the tide of war was against Kazumasu and finally the Hojos fought against TOKUGAWA Ieyasu. But in October 1582, he allied with Ieyasu (*).

After that he invaded into Shimotsuke (current Tochigi) and Hitachi (current Ibaragi). Besides TOYOTOMI Hideyoshi, who became to govern Japan instead of Nobunaga asked him to visit Osaka and pay homage to him but he didn't. To make the matter worse,  the Hojo's occupation of Nagurumi Castle of the Sanadas was considered to be unlawful and Hideyoshi and other daimyos besieged his castle in 1590.

After the surrender, he became a priest and sent to Mt. Koya and was discharged then. But he died of smallpox at the age of thirty in 1591.

In this series, he is described as a unserious young lord of Sagami who is warned by his father. But in the Siege of Odawara in 1590, he becomes responsible and advises Ujimasa not to be besieged any more though he is not keen to listen to his words.

(*) A series of conflicts over the territory is called "Tensho jingo no ran".
