The Osaka Ishido School is said to succeed the Bizen tradition into the Edo period from smiths like Katsumitsu, Munemitsu, and Yoshitsugu. The name Ishido comes from the school’s vicinity to the Ishido temple in the Gamo district. 
The Kishū Ishidō school was settled in the Kii province during Kanei period (1624-1643) by Tosa Shōgen Tameyasu. As it later moved to Osaka, the school is commonly known as Osaka Ishidō. Sukekuni was pupil of Tameyasu; His signature names are " Kishu Ju Sukekuni 紀州住祐國" or " Kii Ju Sukekuni"紀伊住祐國 later " Hanabusa Bizen no kami Minamotono Sukekuni 花房備前守源祐國" as he was given the title "Bizen no Kami" after he moved to Osaka.
