Koretsuna was the son of Anegakoji (Mitsugi) Yoshiyori and resided at Takayama castle in Hida province. He was an ally of Oda Nobunaga, with whom he had a number of audiences. He defeated the Ema clan in 1582 and secured control of all Hida. Around this time Koretsuna came to believe that his eldest son Nobutsuna and a younger brother were plotting against him and ordered the deaths of both. In 1584-1585 he supported Sasa Narimasa when the latter defied Toyotomi Hideyoshi and as a result was attacked by Toyotomi forces under Kanamori Nagachika. He surrendered and afterwards retired to Kyoto, while his second son Hidetsuna committed suicide.
