Takeuchi Name Meaning
Japanese: ‘within the bamboos’. This name is found mostly in west-central Japan, and pronounced Takenouchi by some bearers. The family claims descent from the legendary hero-statesman Takenouchi no Sukune, himself supposedly a descendant of the mythical Emperor Kogen and a counselor to several other emperors, including Ojin (late 4th century). Other families, such as the Soga, also claim Takenouchi no Sukune as an ancestor.
