Hirotsuna was the son of Utsunomiya Naotsuna. Owing to strife within Shimotsuke following the death of Naotsuna, Hirotsuna was forced to flee to the Satake domain as a child. He was married to a daughter of Satake Yoshiaki and with Yoshiaki's assistance was able to recover the Utsunomiya domain, which had been lost earlier to Nasu Takasada. He was succeeded by his son Kunitsuna.
