According to the memorandum, Sata Muneharu took part in the Shimabara War to attack on Hara-jo castle as a captain of a gun squad of the Tachibana army in 1637. He brought a cooper, who usually made wooden buckets, for preparing a lot of bundles of bamboo which were used for attacking the castle. However, both of them died in the battle. Muneharu was shot while the cooper was struck by the stone that the enemy rolled down from the castle.
