Nobukane was a younger son of Oda Nobuhide. Around 1569 he was adopted by the Nagano family of Ise province. He was at Nagano castle when his brother was killed at the Honnoji in Kyoto by Akechi Mitsuhide. He attended the Kiyosu Conference later that year, where he supported Toyotomi Hideyoshi, and stood out for his conduct and bearing. He fell out of favor with Hideyoshi for urging him to show clemency for the deated leaders of the Hôjô when Odawara fell in 1590 and in 1594 cut off his hair and became a monk, assuming the name Rôtaisai. He later regained Hideyoshi's good-will and was given a 60,000 koku fief in Tamba province in 1598, as well as being allowed to attend to the young Toyotomi Hideyori. He supported Ishida Mitsunari during the Sekigahara Campaign (1600) and later died of natural causes. He was considered something of a talent at painting.
