The 16th head, Kikuchi Takemasa (1342-1374)

Last Modified:9/30/2014

Takemitsu's heir

He became a guard of Higo in 1367, and considered to have succeeded the family.  It looks like the clan moved its home base to Moriyama Castle ataround this time.

Although Takemasa fought well along with Takemitsu, he died in 1374, one year after the death of Takemitsu. His graveyard is in Shokanji.
