According to the history, Name of Nakama (仲間) firstly mentioned after the end of Genpei War where the remaining member of Taira Clan claimed the "southern land" which later become their territory. From the original Japanese Languange, term of Nakama (仲間) literally means united or comrade. It's believed that the name Nakama was taken to unite the remaining power of Taira Clan in the southern land to face the Minamoto Shogunate from the north.
Archeological research indicated that Nakama firstly inhabited from around 7,000 BC. Settlers believed moved from the mainland asia thoughout Japanese archipelago toward the southeastern part of Honshu and Izu islands.
Pre-Genpei Nakahara (Before 1180)
Nakama prior to Genpei war in late 12th century are in the direct control of Imperial House of Japan. Nakama known as Southern land or Nangoku (南国) with the central power at Naga Province (名賀国). At this period, Nakama divides into 36 provinces while the southern Seijima Island are barely settled and Ogasawara Island not included in the map at this point.
Genpei War and Taira Shogunate
With the Genpei War in Honshu, in 1180 Ichihara-kyo in modern day Ichihara city established as the temporary seat of Japan's Imperial Court, and therefore the capital of the country, for roughly six months in 1180 during genpei war. Eventually with the lost from Genpei War, Taira clan move from Japanese area to the southern land, establishing feudalism over the land ultimately split Nakama from now Minamoto clan ruled Japan. In 1187 Nakama Imperial government officially established alongside with the feudalistic power of Taira Shogunate with the Taira no Suzuki (later known as Emperor Ichiriki) as the imperial leader. Nakama capital set in Ichihara-kyo which remains to be the capital of the country for next 4 centuries where the Kurahashi Shogunate set the capital in Nanohana.
During this period of Taira leadership, Southern land reconciled the relation with northern land who later ruled by Shikken from Hōjō clan. In 1266, Emperor Daiyouki enacted the reform where the administrative territory of Nangoku defined as 53 province which later become the base of the modern Nakama prefecture administrative divisions. Taira Shogun in this period come from the branch line of the early Taira Clan who formed the Nangoku (later Nakama) administration. By 1345, the weakening of main imperial line of Nangoku, Taira Yoshitoshi as the shogun at that time reinforce the situation by strengthened the rule of shogunate on Nangoku and redefine the rule of local daimyos leader of every provinces which resulting for more control of daimyos toward their lands.
Warring State Period
In 1501 with the weakening authority of taira shogunate combined with multiple succession crisis, numberous of local daimyos on the country pursue to gather the power and dominance on their areas initially by seeking the loyality toward one side during a succession crisis which later grow into the open war all over the region. During this period of warring state (1501-1603) many daimyos engage into other in order to gain influence.
With the similar condition during the Sengoku Period in northern land (Japan), in 1579 series of battle happened in Shibasaki between the forces of coalition of Oda Clan from north with the Kurahashi Clan which the daimyo of Shibasaki area alongside with several reinforcement including from declining Taira Shogunate. Although this invasion toward Nakama had failed, it triggers the later Kurahashi Clan's heir at that time Kurahashi Muramasa (1563-1640) to gather the dividing power of Southern Land back into single centralized authority in order to repel any future possible treat toward their land.
in 1590 Toyotomi Hideyoshi seeking to unify the southern land diplomatically. However multiple attempt had been failed, mostly due to the strong disagreement from Kurahashi Clan leader (which is Muramasa at that time) who is the representative of southern land most of time. in 1592, Kurahashi Muramasa started to gather ally in order to start his unification under the banner of Kurahashi. By 1603, Kurahashi able to gain Emperor Yoiki favor after multiple battle with other clans to become the shogun replacing the fallen Taira Shogunate, ultimately ending the warring state period.
