Takahashi Shigetane, or Shôun, was a vassal of the Ôtomo clan of Bungo province, and governed Chikuzen province. In 1586, he was attacked by a Shimazu army of 50,000 at Iwaya castle in Dazaifu. After holding out for over a month, he committed suicide. Though Takahashi and all of his men were killed, his resistance played a key role towards the Shimazu decision to give up on their efforts to push further into Ôtomo territory.
