- 島津家 (Shimazu-ke)
The Shimazu clan were the lords of Satsuma province for nearly 700 years, from the 1180s through the 1870s, commanding considerable power and semi-independence within their domain. During the Edo period, the Shimazu had the second-highest official kokudaka in the realm, and with the marriage of Atsuhime in 1856 became the only samurai clan to marry daughters into the Tokugawa clan. Following the Meiji Restoration, members of the clan remained powerfully influential in politics.
The Shimazu clan is renowned for the loyalty of its retainers and officers, especially during the Sengoku period.
The Shimazu are also famous for being the first to use firearms (arquebuses) on the battlefield in Japan, and began domestic production of the weapons as well.
Shimazu battle tactics are known to have been very successful in defeating larger enemy armies, particularly during their campaign to conquer Kyushu in the 1580s.
Their tactics included the luring of the opposition into an ambush on both sides by arquebus troops, creating panic and disorder.
Central forces would then be deployed to rout the enemy.
