Dôkyô never reached Edo. When the Ryukyuan mission arrived in the port town of Tomonoura (near Hiroshima), on the evening of 1790/10/13, Dôkyô had already died of illness, possibly related to the sea voyage. He was 22 years old. He was buried the following morning at the temple Komatsu-dera in that town. His tombstone, inscribed and erected by Confucian scholar Yamamuro Nyosai at the orders of Abe Masatomo, lord of Fukuyama han, reads 「琉球司楽向生碑」.
