According to the description in "Sonpi Bunmyaku" (a text compiled in the fourteenth century that records the lineages of the aristocracy), he served as Koichijoin (Imperial Prince Atsuakira) Hogandai (an administrative official of the Retired Emperor's Office) and Sanuki no kuni no kami (Provincial Governor of Sanuki) and was promoted to Jugoinoge (Junior Fifth Rank, Lower Grade), and later became a priest who resided at Onjo-ji Temple and then passed away.
