Fuyuyasu was the third son of Miyoshi Motonaga and a younger brother of Miyoshi Chokei and a noted poet. He held Takenokuchi castle on Island and commanded ships for his elder brother. In the third month of 1562, he and Miyoshi Yoshikata lost in battle to Hatakeyama Takamasa in Izumi province, and was forced to flee to Awaji. However, during the sixth month of the same year, Takamasa was destroyed in Kawachi province.

Fuyuyasu is thought to have been murdered on the orders of Matsunaga Hisahide while visiting Iimori castle as part of the latter's efforts to undermine the Miyoshi. His son was Atagi Nobuyasu.
