Kageyori served Date Masamune and was known in his childhood as Gensaburô. In 1595 he was tasked with punishing the desertion of Date Shigezane and did so by taking his Tsunoda castle and putting his family to death. He was an important commander in the campaign against the Uesugi in 1600 but was dispossessed in 1607 for illegal activities.
