Norikatsu Ogigayatsu

The Ogigayatsu were a branch of the Uesugi clan, but unlike Harukage Nagao's Nagao branch, had a base in Musashi Province, while the Nagao had Echigo and the Yamanouchi had Province. The Ogigayatsu clan fought the Nagao and Yamanouchi clans a lot before the Warring States Period, but by 1545, they were allies. The Ogigayatsu member Tomosada Ogigayatsu was slain in the Siege of Kawagoe Castle, and afterwards, the clan crumbled. In 1546, Ujiyasu Hojo, who led the defense of Kawagoe, took Edo Castle, the stronghold of the Ogigayatsu, and took over the Ogigayatsu clan's territory, crushing them.
