Yamamoto Masayoshi was a Satsuma han retainer, and the first lead instructor of the Zôshikan, a domain school established by Shimazu Shigehide in 1773.

A Confucian scholar, Yamamoto served for a time as seidô bugyô (Magistrate of the Confucian Hall) in Satsuma, before being appointed to head the school then being established at the Confucian Hall. This school was later renamed "Zôshikan" in 1786. Yamamoto served in that position for many years, and then later was named monogashira yônin.

In 1802, he compiled a history of the domain entitled Shimazu kokushi.
