Morinari was considered one of the "Mino Triumvirate" (西美濃三人衆 Nishi Mino Sanninshū?), along with Inaba Yoshimichi and Ujiie Naotomo. In 1547, they agreed together to join the forces of Oda Nobunaga.
He fought at the Siege of Inabayama Castle (1562), the Battle of Anegawa (1570) and in the battles for the Ishiyama Honganji. He was dismissed from Nobunaga's service following the fall of the Honganji after negotiations for his contract fell to a standstill in 1580 and eventually died as a ronin.
