Chikanari was a daimyô of Hyûga and held Matsuo castle. He came to accept the authority of Itô Yoshisuke. In 1578 he sided with the invading Shimazu and was afterwards besieged by the Ôtomo in their campaign to subdue Hyûga that same year. When the Shimazu were unable to arrive in time, Chikanari was forced to commit suicide and his lands were given to Ôtomo retainers.
