The only Ieyasu in mine and many others eyes, Masahiko Tsugawa has passed .
He was the son in law of legendary director Masahiro Makino, but its Ieyasu we know him as, he played the role 5 times, inc Aoi and the Masamune Taiga's. His performance in Aoi saw him claim ownership of the role , no other actor could come close to him .

His last role was in the recent Kyoshiro TV Movie .

His wife Yukiji Asaoka passed away earlier this year too. I saw the interview with Masahiko, he did not look good at all. :(
