- Title: Iga no Kami
Morinari was originally a retainer of the Saito and, along with Inaba Ittetsu and Ujiie Bokuzen, had been known as one of the 'Mino Triumvirs'. He joined the Oda following the death of Saito Yoshitatsu in 1561 and fought at Anegawa (1570) and in the battles for the Ishiyama Honganji. He was dismissed from Nobunaga's service following the fall of the Honganji in 1580 and evidently died as a ronin.
