Jump to: navigation, search

The Amakusa were a minor power on Amakusa Island. They rebelled with others against Konishi Yukinaga in 1589 and were put down. Although the name Amakusa is famous thanks to Amakusa ShirĂ´, the spiritual leader of the Shimabara Rebellion of 1637-38, ShirĂ´ was not related to the Amakusa family, instead being a son of a certain Masuda Yoshitsugu.
