OSUMI UJISADA was the first master of the UJISADA SHINTO. His teacher, UJIFUSA, came from MINO bringing SOSHU tradition to SATSUMA. 
UJIFUSA is considered the key to the survival of SOSHU style (which fell away elsewhere). 

SATSUMA was one of the "Seven Provinces of SHINTO" and, while the eras' social and political events were theatered in the riches of OSAKA, KYOTO and EDO, his became the established SHINTO school (along with HIZEN-TO) along an otherwise "sleepy" Old SAIKAIDO Road.
