Tsuchiya Masanao served as a member of the rôjû for over thirty years, through the reigns of Shogun Tokugawa Tsunayoshi, Ienobu, and Ietsugu.[1]

He previously served as Kyoto shoshidai from 1685/9/23 to 1687/10/13, before being named to the rôjû in 1687.

In 1705, Tsuchiya was named Chôsen goyô, meaning he was appointed to be the primary member of the rôjû to liaise with the Sô clan lords of Tsushima domain in handling formal diplomatic relations with Joseon dynasty Korea.[1]
