Naotomo was considered one of the "Mino Triumvirate" (西美濃三人衆, Nishi Mino Sanninshū), along with Inaba Yoshimichi and Andō Morinari. In 1567, they agreed together to join the forces of Oda Nobunaga.[2]

He took part in the Siege of Inabayama in 1567 and the battle of Anegawa in 1570. On 12 May 1571, he died fighting against the Ikkō-ikki at the First Siege of Nagashima while under the command of Shibata Katsuie.
