Life[edit]

Masanao was the successor of his father Masatoshi in the ranks of the senior Takeda retainers, and was given command of 250 cavalry.[1] Masanao was driven out of Takatō Castle following a siege in 1582, but was soon allowed to return through the assistance of the Hojo clan. Following a brief conflict with Tokugawa Ieyasu's forces, Masanao became a Tokugawa retainer, and was allowed to retain Takatō.[1] He took part in the Siege of Odawara Castle under Ieyasu's command,[2] and moved to the Kantō region together with Ieyasu. In the Kantō, Masanao was granted the Tako Domain.[1]
