Ogasawara Nagashige

Ogasawara Nagashige (小笠原 長重, June 5, 1650 – September 19, 1732), also known as Sado-no-kami or Etchū-no-kami, was a Japanese samurai daimyo of the mid-Edo period.[1]

The Ogasawara were identified as one of the fudai or insider daimyō clans which were hereditary vassals or allies of the Tokdugawa,[2] in contrast with the tozama or outsider clans.

Shogunate official

Nagashige served the Tokugawa shogunate as its eleventh Kyoto shoshidai in the period spanning October 17, 1691 through May 15, 1702.[3] He had previously been shogunate's magistrate or overseer of the country's temples and shrines (jisha bugyō) from Genroku 3, the 3rd day of the 12th month, through Genroku 4, the 26th day of the 4th month (1691).[1]

He was responsible for bringing Yamada Sōhen, a disciple of Sen Sōtan, to Edo in order to promulgate the practice of the Japanese tea ceremony.[4]
