Sô Sadamori was a 15th century Sô clan lord of Tsushima. In 1436, he received a monopoly (within Japan) on trade with Korea. In 1449, he presented an important collection of Korean sutras to a Hachiman shrine on the island, which was later donated by Ishida Mitsunari to Mt. Kôya.[1]

His younger brother Sô Moriyo oversaw Tsutsu district at the southern end of Tsushima Island. Sadamori's son Sô Shigemoto succeeded him as head of the Sô house and ruler of Tsushima.
