Tomohide served Uesugi Kenshin in the latter's efforts to take control of Echigo from his elder brother Harukage. He became a noted Uesugi retainer but rebelled in 1556. His rebellion did not go as planned, but he managed to escape to Etchû province and took up service with Takeda Shingen around 1563. He led troops under the command of Yamagata Masakage and was loyal to the Takeda to the end in 1582. He was killed near Temmokuzan by Oda forces.
