The Ashikaga Clan is an unplayable faction in Total War: Shogun 2.
The Ashikaga own the title of shogunate at the beginning of the campaign. They have some powerful assets, including a unit of the formidable Great Guard.
The Ashikaga Clan can declare war on other clans but will not ever attack or take another province. This means that it grows comparatively weaker over time in the face of growing clans around it.
The Ashikaga Clan was the leading ruling clan (The Shogunate) prior to the Sengoku Jidai, in the Muromachi period. They had a limited rule from the their capital Kyoto although the Clan claimed de jure complete rule of the Japanese State. In Total War: Shogun 2 they play the role of a comprehensive advising body to the clans (not unlike Senatus Populusque Romanus in Rome: Total War or Papal States in the two Medieval Total Wars), from Kyoto they work to make sure no clan becomes too powerful to threaten their rule.
