Yoshitaka Satake (1825–1884)

The twelfth lord of Kubota domain who reigned for 14 years

Lord Yoshitaka Satake adapted the domain to the needs of the time, including the development of sericulture and promotion of battle skills (not only the traditional martial arts and horsemanship but also the Western style of warring). He was the one who led the domain during the Boshin War in 1868. Yoshitaka, the last lord of the Kubota domain, was nominated the first prefect of the domain under the Meiji Government in 1869. He was made marquis in 1884 and died in the same year.
