Tadatomo Honda
Birth: 1582
Death: 1615

Samurai Warrior. Tadatomo Honda served as a retainer of the powerful Tokugawa clan that eventually established a long-standing shogunate rule over Japan. He was the younger son of the even more famous Tadakatsu Honda, who became one of "Four Guardians of the Tokugawa." In recognition of his service, Tadatomo received a 100,000-koku fief at Otaki in Kazusa Province in 1600. In 1609, he hosted received Don Roderigo, the Spanish Governor of Manila. In 1615, Honda played a major role in the outcome of the pivitol Battle of Tennoji. He is recognized for valiantly leading an attack that concluded in the death of Yukimura Sanada, a major Tokugawa opponent. Honda himself was killed during this battle. A visit to his grave is thought to help one overcome alcoholism. (bio by: Warrick L. Barrett)
