The Jinbo kamon.

The Jinbo family of Etchû province, at one time possible retainers of the Hatakeyama, were almost constantly at war with local rivals such as the Shiina and the ikko-ikki. Defeated by Nagao Tamekage in 1520, they enjoyed a brief period of local power under Jinbo Nagamoto but when Uesugi Kenshin sided with Shiina they lost their castle, Toyama, and at length became Uesugi vassals.
