Kawachi is a province in Total War: Shogun 2.


Kawachi is a small inland province located in Kansai, Honshu. It is the home of Kawachi Ondo, a traditional form of Japanese folk music often used to recount legendary tales of people and places. Under the rule of the Hatakeyama clan, Kawachi frequently became a battleground, mostly as a result of the constant power struggles that evolved between the different branches of the Hatakeyama.

General InformationEdit

  • Clan: Hatakeyama Clan
  • Port: None
  • Fertility: Barren
  • Specialty/Resource: None

With no port, barren soil, and no specialty/resource, Kawachi is one of the poorest provinces in Shogun 2. Its tiny size also makes it relatively worthless defensively as armies can easily walk through or around it. It is, however, surrounded by rich or otherwise useful provinces, making it a good staging point for launching attacks.

Kawachi borders Settsu to the north and west, Kyoto to the northeast, Yamato to the east, and Kii to the south.
