  • Other Name: Takahashi Shigetane


Takahashi Shoun was a vassal of the Otomo clan of Bungo province who eventually succeeded the Takahashi clan. In 1586 he was attacked by a Shimazu army of 50,000 at Iwaya castle (see the Siege of Iwaya), and died heroically. After the Battle of Sekigahara, the Takahashi clan would cease to exist. However, Shoun's bloodline did continue. His seal, flag, and umajirushi are all unknown.
