Specialties / Talents


Takeda Shingen, original name Takeda Harunobu, (born December 1, 1521, Kai province [now Yamanashi prefecture], Japan—died May 13, 1573. Komaba, Shlnano province [now Nagano prefecture], daimyo (feudal lord) and one of the most famous military leaders of Japan, who struggled for mastery of the strategic Kanté Plain in east-central Honshu during the chaotic Sengoku (“Warring States”) period of civil unrest in the 16th century. Takeda is especially well known for his series of battles (1553-64) with the noted warrior Uesugi Kenshin. which not only are famous in the annals of Japanese history but are also much celebrated in Japanese drama and folklore.

Takeda Harunobu was born into the powerful Takeda clan of Shugo daimyo (military governors) who at the time controlled Kai province (present-day Yamanashi Prefecture), a mountainous region west of the Kanto Plain. in 1541 he forced his father. Takeda Nobutora, to retire as head of the clan, and Harunobu assumed that position. He soon began expanding his family’s domains northward into Shinano province (present-day Nagano prefecture) and into other lands adjacent to Kai. He entered the priesthood in 1551, at which time he assumed the Buddhist name Shingen. Taking religious vows, however, in no way hampered his participation in worldly affairs.
