Taneshige at first served the Saitô of Mino province and held Kigoe castle. When the Saitô were ousted by the Oda in 1567, Taneshige entered the service of the latter. He was killed under the command of Sakai Masahisa in the course of fighting the Asai and Asakura near Ôtsu (in southern Ômi province) in 1570. He is thought to have been around 25 at the time of his death.
