Shimazu Torajumaru was the eldest son of Shimazu Nariakira, lord of Kagoshima han. Designated heir at a very young age, plans were also made for Torajumaru to marry Konoe Tadako, a daughter of Kanpaku Konoe Tadahiro. Torajumaru died in 1854, however, at the age of five or six, before the betrothal was formalized.
