Kunikiyo was a son of Murakami Yoshikiyo and served the Uesugi. He aided in early negotiations with the Tokugawa and campaigned with Uesugi Kenshin in Etchû (1572) and Noto (1577). When Kenshin died in 1578, Kunikiyo gave his loyalty to Uesugi Kagekatsu. In 1582 he was given Kaizu in Shinano Province but was called back to Echigo province the following year. Kunikiyo afterwards left the Uesugi and is thought to have died in Kyoto.
