KANTÔ
KANREI / KUBÔ

 
The office of Kanto Kanrei was established by Ashikaga Takauji in 1349 and was alloted to his son Motouji as a way of maintaining Ashikaga influence in the Kanto region. In 1432 Ashikaga Mochiuji, the 4th Kanto kanrei was accused of rebellious activities and was destroyed on the orders of Ashikaga Yoshinori. Ashikaga Shigeuji was allowed to maintain the office of Kanto kanrei but after moving from Kamakura to the Koga area became known as the Koga Kubô. In 1561 the rank of Kanrei was conferred on Uesugi Kenshin at his request by the shôgun Ashikaga Yoshiteru.
