  • Titles: Echigo no kami
  • Distinction: Ukita retainer

Masayuki was born in Harima province but came to serve Ukita Naoie of Bizen province. He became one of Naoie's senior retainers and was remembered for his skill with bow and arrow. In one notable incident, a pirate commander boasted that he would expose his neck and see if any arrow could strike it, which prompted Masayuki, a passanger on a boat he was threatening, to loose an arrow and kill him with one shot.
