Koretsuna was the son of [[Anegakoji Yoshiyori|Anegakoji (Mitsugi) Yoshiyori]] and resided at [[Takayama castle]] in [[Hida province]]. He was an ally of [[Oda Nobunaga]], with whom he had a number of audiences. He defeated the [[Ema clan]] in [[1582]] and secured control of all Hida. Around this time Koretsuna came to believe that his eldest son Nobutsuna and a younger brother were plotting against him and ordered the deaths of both. In [[1584]]-[[1585]] he supported [[Sasa Narimasa]] when the latter defied [[Toyotomi Hideyoshi]] and as a result was attacked by [[Toyotomi clan|Toyotomi]] forces under [[Kanamori Nagachika]]. He surrendered and afterwards retired to [[Kyoto]], while his second son Hidetsuna committed suicide.
