Kurushima Michifusa was a son of Kurushima Michiyasu and served the Kôno until their defeat at the hands of Chôsokabe Motochika in 1580. When the Chôsokabe were in the process of being defeated in turn by Toyotomi Hideyoshi in 1585, Michiyasu gave his allegiance to the latter. He was confirmed in a 12,000-koku fief in Iyo province (Kuroshima) and went on to serve as a naval commander for Hideyoshi. He commanded ships in the Odawara (1590) and Korean Campaigns and fought in a number of naval contests with the Korean Admiral Yi Sun Shin. He was defeated and killed by Yi in the Battle of Myongyang (1597).
