Rise of the Nakamura
Held By: Nakamura Clan
Capital: Mito Castle
Events: Assault on Hitachi
Hitachi is a coastal province directly north of Shimosa, its Southern border marked by a line of mountains and valleys. It was the first province invaded by the Daimyo Nakamura Eiji, where he deposed the ruling Satake Clan and took control of the castle town of Mito, the birthplace of Satake Oeyo. Due to the Daimyo’s unique method of expansion, the province is now officially regarded as part of Shimosa, rather than as a separate entity.
Otherwise, Hitachi is notable for being a trading hub, with many merchant lords, one of whom is father to the lovely Kanahime.
