He served under Toyotomi Hideyoshi and was given 10,000 goku in Buzen Province in 1587, and went to battle on Toyotomi's side in the Osaka Winter Campaign of 1614, but was defeated and committed suicide. The war banner has white background with a red circle. The Minamoto clan, which established the shogunate and samurai government, is said to have used a white flag with a Hinomaru red circle as a military banner in addition to the white flag, and many Daimyo used the Hinomaru in imitation of this.
