Masaie Natsuka was one of the Gobugyos, lord of Omiminaguchi. In the battle of Sekigahara, he joined the
WESTERN ARMY. The moment they saw the beacon they sent an express messenger to Hidemoto Mori, and urged him to join the army, but Mori’s forces could not move.
Therefore Masaie Natsuka doubted Terumoto Mori, and he didn’t move his forces, too. He pulled out his forces after the battle, and fled back to Minaguchi Castle. Masaie later committed suicide.
