Part of The Period of Three Shoguns
Battle of Oka-kyo Komaki
|Fushikki Clan||Muromachi Clan|
|Muromachi Katsuyo |
The Taiju (大樹の乱 Taiju no Ran ) was a civil war that lasted 10 years (1567–1476) during the Three Shoguns Period in Okaiken. A dispute between Shibata Kanegetsu and Muromachi Katsuyo escalated into a nationwide war involving the three shogunates and a number of daimyo in many regions of Okaiken.
The war initiated the Sengoku jidai, "the Warring States Period". This period was a long, drawn-out struggle for domination by individual daimyo, resulting in a mass power-struggle between the various houses to dominate the whole of Japan. During this long period three individuals emerged who would unite Japan under one rule; they were Ogasawara Taijo, Kawada Ietomo, and Honda Futaku.
