- Japanese: 平 左衛門尉 信重 (Taira Saemon-no-jou Nobushige)
Nobushige led this 1471 mission to Korea alongside the Buddhist monk Jitan. He is also said to have been the one to suggest to Ryûkyû the implementation of a system of half-cut tallies, to help serve as the mark of a legitimate commercial/diplomatic representative. He was granted formal official's robes by the Ryukyuan court, but is said to have actually desired to be named an official of the Korean court.
