Uesugi Kenshin (上杉 謙信 February 18, 1530 – April 19, 1578), known as the “Dragon of Echigo“, was a legendary daimyo during the tumultuous Sengoku period of Japan. While chiefly remembered for his prowess on the battlefield, Kenshin is also regarded as an extremely skillful administrator who fostered the growth of local industries and trade; his rule saw a marked rise in the standard of living of Echigo. Kenshin is famed for his honourable conduct, his military expertise, a long-standing rivalry with Takeda Shingen and his belief in the Buddhist god of war — Bishamonten.
