Shimazu Hisayoshi was a son-in-law of Shimazu Iehisa.

He was named by Iehisa to a number of prominent positions within the Satsuma han domainal government, and a letter of congratulations from Prince Gushikawa Chôjû of the Ryûkyû Kingdom, likely dating to around 1634, survives in the collection of the Kagoshima Prefectural History Museum (Reimeikan) today.

Hisayoshi was named a karô in 1663.
