Finally, in the repeating battles, he couldn’t afford to resist to Motochika. He burned Asakura Castle and went back to Motoyama Castle.
After Shigetoki died, his nephew Motoyama Chikashige succeeded him. Motochika continued attacking. At last, the Motoyama family surrendered and joined the Chosokabe family.
