Jump to: navigation, search

Toshifusa was the second son of Kinoshita Iesada. He joined his brother Katsutoshi in fighting against Tokugawa Ieyasu in 1600, but went to join the Tokugawa attack on Osaka castle, for which he was awarded his father's fief of Ashimori in Bitchû province (25,000 koku).

In 1633, following the death of his aunt Kitamandokoro Nene in 1624, he had her mansion turned into a temple, Entoku-in, where Nene and her husband Toyotomi Hideyoshi would be entombed, and where prayers and offerings could be made to their spirits.
