Yoriyuki, the son of the noted warrior-scholar [[Hosokawa Yoriharu]], was a loyal and talented supporter of the [[Ashikaga clan|Ashikaga]]. He served as the first [[Kanrei]] (Deputy/Vice-shôgun) and acted as guardian and counsel to [[Ashikaga Yoshimitsu]]. At the same time he expanded and consolidated the [[Hosokawa clan|Hosokawa]] influence over [[Awa province|Awa]] and [[Sanuki province|Sanuki]] on the island of [[Shikoku]], provinces that would be Hosokawa bastions until the 16th Century.

As Kanrei Yoriyuki sought to avoid creating another version of the [[Hojo clan|Hojo]] Shikken and instituted a policy whereby posting as Kanrei was alternated between the Hosokawa, [[Shiba clan|Shiba]], and [[Hatakeyama clan|Hatakeyama]] [[shugo]] families. This did not stop other lords from becoming jealous of Yoriyuki's closeness of the shôgun. After a 12-year tenure as Kanrei, Yoriyuki was forced to step down, costing the Ashikaga an almost indispensable asset.

A marked contrast to later Hosokawa Kanrei, Yoriyuki is little known but epitomized the soldier-statesman ideal so cherished during the early to mid-[[Muromachi period]].
