Fujisuke held Tosaka castle in Echigo province and sided with Uesugi Kenshin during the latter's attempts to wrest Echigo from his elder brother. He fought at the Fourth Battle of Kawanakajima (1561) and was given a commendation for his bravery there. He died without a son and so was succeeded by a son of Yoshie Kagechika, Kageyasu.
