- Distinction: Ashikaga retainer
Sadaroku was appointed by the shôgun as military governor of Yamashiro province in the 5th month of 1486 in order to take back control of the province from a rebellious league of farmers and land managers. This assembly rejected his appointment, and continued to assume judicial and tax powers until 1493, when Sadaroku was re-appointed governor and most of the soldiers of Yamashiro submitted to him. The remaining holdouts were crushed, effectively ending the rebellion.
