Sengoku Daimyo / Sengoku Busho

Sengoku Daimyo was the powerful or influential samurai worriers or lords who competed leading samurai as the shogun from late Muromachi Period (after the war of Onin) to Sengoku Period (the Warring States Period) in Japan. And also Sengoku Daimyo was a kind of sovereign states.
Some provincial military governors’ power declined and others improved to be the Sengoku Daimyos. The daimyos tried to get rid of the aristocratic feudal powers from their territories and to centralize to rule, so they tried to control their retainers and sumurai worriers in their territories, supported the industries to develop, established laws to centralize, built their castle towns and exploited mineral resources to enrich and strengthen their power.
The developed areas near Kyoto (the capital city of Japan in Sengoku Period), many new heroes appeared after they had defeated the military governors that it was called Gekokujo in Japanese, on the other hand, the provincial military governors became the Sengoku Daimyo in rural areas. Hojo in Sagami, Oda in Owari, Mori in Aki and Nagasokabe in Tosa were all defeated the governors to be the daimyo, and Date in Oshu, Takeda in Kai and Imagawa in Suruga were the provincial governors.
The first Sengoku Daimyo was the Hojo Family. After the 100 years of the period, Nobunaga Oda and Hideyoshi Toyotomi reconstructed to unify the daimyos under their control, finally all of them were reorganized in the Tokugawa Shogunate.
Now the word 'Sengoku Daimyo' points out samurai families in Sengoku Period, but it also points out samurai worriers in that period usually called Sengoku Busho.
