Shiga Chikamori

Chikamori was an important retainer of Ôtomo Sôrin. During the 1570's and early 1580's, Chikamori began to distance himself from the Ôtomo and went so far as to enter into secret communications with the invading Shimazu in 1586 although his son Chikataka fought the latter from Okashiro castle. Chikamori afterwards faded into obscurity as the Shiga family lost much of its influence when the Ôtomo were dispossessed after the 1600 Sekigahara Campaign.
