The name Emishi (蝦夷, pre-7th century 毛人) was used by the Japanese to designate people who lived in northeastern Japan corresponding to the present-day Tohoku region, known in contemporary sources as michi no oku, who opposed and resisted the rule of the Japanese Emperors during the late Nara and early Heian periods (7th–10th centuries A.D.).
Ironically, it was the development of horse archery and the adoption of Emishi tactics by the early Japanese warriors that led to the Emishi defeat.
The Emishi of Akita in alliance with Michinoku attacked Japanese settlements in response.
Sogano Iname served as Great Minister from 536 until his death in 570, and was the first of the Soga to carry to extreme lengths the domination of the Throne by the nobility.
The Soga family, however, supported the introduction of Buddhism, placing a holy image of the Buddha in a major Shinto shrine; Sogano Iname claimed that Buddhism brought with it a new form of government that would subvert the independence of the clans, unifying the Japanese people under the Emperor.
SoganoEmishi and his son Iruka began to build more and more elaborate palaces and tombs for themselves, styling themselves sovereigns.
