Asakura Norikage ( , 1477 – September 23, 1555), also known as Asakura S?teki ( ), was a Japanese samurai warrior of the latter Sengoku Period.
Norikage was the eighth son of Asakura Toshikage.
In 1506, he led the Asakura against the Ikk?-ikki in the Battle of Kuzuryugawa at the Kuzury? River. In 1555, another engagement occurred in the Battle of Daishoji-omote.
In 1548, he became a priest and changed his name to Soteki; however, this did not keep him from engaging in war. He engaged in his last campaign at the age of 79 against Ikk? adherents. He died of natural causes during this campaign.
