Civilization V Customisation Wiki

The Takayama clan led by Justo Takayama is a custom civilization by DuskJockey, with contributions from Relic and DarthKyofu.

This mod requires Brave New World.



The Takayama clan is the name of two unrelated samurai families that were both active during the Kamakura, Muromachi, and Azuchi-Momoyama periods. The Heisei Takayama were Uesugi vassals originally from Musashi province, while the Settsu Takayama were from the eponymous province and are famous for being Christian daimyos during the Warring States period.

Justo Takayama[]

Justo Takayama Ukon was a Roman Catholic kirishitan daimyo, martyr, and a candidate for canonization for sainthood in the Roman Catholic Church. He was dedicated to his faith and even gave up his position as a daimyo as a result. He is also the only daimyo to be buried on foreign soil.

Dawn of Man[]

"May the Lord look with favor upon you, Justo Takayama Ukon, proud samurai and head of the Takayama clan. Though at first you held your Christian faith in low esteem, a brush with death would enkindle the flame of God's love within your heart. From there, you would serve with distinction under Oda Nobunaga and his successor Toyotomi Hideyoshi in their campaigns to unite Japan. In their name, you would fight battles, design castles, and practice the sublime Way of Tea, all while propagating the faith transmitted to you by your fathers in blood and in mind. Alas, this glorious career would meet an ignominious end; expelled from Japan by the nascent Tokugawa shogunate's Christian persecutions, you would be exiled to Manila in 1614 AD, where you would breathe your last not forty days after arriving.

Blessed Justus, he who stands close to God's right hand, your clan once more calls you to lead them. They clamor for a man who will run the race to the finish, who will profess the faith until his dying breath -- will you be for them this man? Will you take up your cross once more, and ensure it stands victorious all across the land? Will you build a civilization that will stand the test of time?"

Introduction: "I greet you as a brother in the faith, great one. I am Justo Takayama, head of my clan. Would you care for some tea?"

Defeat: "Very well. I sign my name on my works, and leave their valuation to my Lord in heaven."
