Shimizu Muneharu (1537? -1582) was the
son of the lord of Bingo province and joined the Mōri clan in 1576.
He is known for defending Takamatsu
castle in 1582. Hideyoshi altered the course of the river to flood
the castle and still refused to
surrender. After the delivery of the fortress, Hideyoshi asked for his
suicide and Muneharu carried it
out on his boat, in front of the enemy's army.
Represented as a great lord, he stands
on top of a boat, watching the Takamatsu fortress flood.
