Tondan is the 3rd son of Shoseki. He was accomplished in both the literary and military arts.

Tondan helped his father, Shoseki at his private school, “Seishu-Do” with his brother. After devoting himself to teaching in Amakusa area, he came back to Kikuchi and taught young men at his private school, “Baikashooku” (Plum Blossoms School). His efforts during these years became highly acknowledged by the government.
