Kabayama Hisataka was a karô under the first two Edo period lords of Satsuma han, and was involved in many of the Shimazu clan's major military campaigns of his time.

He fought in Toyotomi Hideyoshi's Korean Invasions in the 1590s, and the Shônai Rebellion in Hyûga province in 1599, before leading the invasion of Ryûkyû as the chief commander of the han's forces in 1609.

Kabayama is known in some records as 呉済 (Gozai), a Chinese approximation of the Japanese pronunciation of 権左 (Gonza).

He is buried at Tahô-ji, in the city of Hioki in Kagoshima prefecture.
