In the postwar Japan, starting by forging commemorative sword called Kowakinen-to when Japan concluded the peace treaty with the United States at San Francisco in 1952, Moriyoshi made a fresh start in 1954. He got several prizes at the annual sword-making competition held by NBTHK, won a reputation reviving the hamon of Kiyomaro and designated as a Mukansa-tosho in 1985.
