Soun accepted a strategy from [Oumori Fujiyori] of Odawara Castle and suppressed West Sagami. After that, he built Tamanawa Castle as a base to attack Mr. Miura of East Sagami.

The first castle owner was the second son of Soun [Ujitoki], when Ujitoki died he did not have kids so Soun appointed Ujitsuna’s son [Tamemasa] as the castle owner. However, Tamemasa died suddenly and [Tsunanari] inherited. After that was [Ujishige], then Ujishige’s son [Ujikiyo] and then his younger brother [Ujikatsu], those 4 generations ruled this area.
