Kagetsura was a senior Asakura retainer whose field of expertise was diplomacy. An interesting anecdote survives about him: in 1561, when Asakura Yoshikage held a dog-hunting gathering at Okubo, Kagetsura is said to have dressed so nicely that those in attendance mistook him for the lord of the clan, causing him much embarrassment.
