Yoriyasu was the son of [[Indo Shigeyasu|Indô Mimasaka no kami Shigeyasu and was related to the Sagara of Higo province, whom he served. Yoriyasu's family was nearly wiped out on the orders of Sagara Nagasada, and Yoriyasu, then a child, was saved by going to a temple. He later returned to secular life and served the Sagara, fighting with great bravery against the Shimazu clan at the Siege of Minamata (1581). When Sagara Yoshiaki committed suicide and Minamata fell, Yoriyasu once more took up the tonsure and remained in a temple for the remainder of his life.
