This article does not cite any sources. (July 2010) (Learn how and when to remove this template message)
In the Kokinshū's Kanajo (Japanese Preface), Yasuhide is described as "Yasuhide used words skillfully, but his words do not match the content. His poetry is like a merchant dressed up in elegant clothes." Five of his poems are included in the Kokinshū and one of his poems is included in the Goshūi wakashū. He was involved in a relationship with Ono no Komachi and it is even said that when he received his appointment to Mikawa, he invited her to go with him.
His son was a poet Fun'ya no Asayasu.
