  • Titles: Kuranosuke
  • Distinction: Bizen warlord

Munekage was the son of Urakami Muramune. He nominally held much of Bizen province and ruled from Tenjinyama. A rival of the Akamatsu to the west and the Amako to the north, he was compelled to rely on Ukita Naoie to maintain order in Bizen. Naoie thus grew in strength and began to find pretexts to eliminate Munekage's other retainers. Munekage was ultimately forced to flee his lands to Sanuki, at which time Ukita assumed control of Bizen.
