Seichin was born to an aristocrat family, Mō-uji Zakimi Dunchi (毛氏座喜味殿内), and he was also the seventh head of this family. In 1807, he was granted Yuntanza magiri (読谷山間切, modern Yomitan) as his hereditary fief.[1]

Seichin was dispatched as nentōshi (年頭使), a mission sent to Kagoshima each year to convey formal New Year's greetings to daimyō of Satsuma, in 1826.[2] He served as a member of sanshikan from 1826 to 1836.[3]
