Yoshitada Satake (1694–1715)

The fourth lord of Kubota domain who reigned for 12 years

The early death of his brother Yoshitane made Yoshitada the heir to Yoshizumi. Thanks to his success in the reorganization of forestry policy and the increase in taxation, the financial difficulties eased, and Yoshitada managed to abolish the system of chigyo-kariage (“compulsory borrowing from officials”), which had been introduced by Yoshizumi. Yoshitada upgraded the domain’s archives office to a history center and established the genealogical document of the Satake family and the major families in Kubota domain.
