This is an exceedingly wealthy province located on the west coast of Hokuriku. The teachings of the Jodo Shinshu priest, Rennyo, whose followers would become infamous as the Ikko-Ikki, were quick to spread throughout Kaga. Following the local lord's suicide in 1488, Kaga would remain under Ikko control, until Oda Nobunaga invaded in 1580. Kaga is also famed for its cuisine and especially its seafood.
