Mitsunari was the son of Kakiya Tsugunari and at first served the Yamana of Inaba province. He came to hold great influence within Inaba and Tajima provinces while assuming almost an independent posture regarding the Yamana. When the Toyotomi army entered Inaba in 1580 and threatened Mitsunari's Yoida castle, he submitted and became a retainer of Miyabe Tsugimasu. He afterwards resided until his death from advanced age (he may have been over 80) at Uradome in Inaba
