He reported over 5 million yen ($48,000 USD) for utility expenses in 2005. This expense was questioned by the press, since Matsuoka had a very small office. However, Matsuoka said that it had been paid for purified water, explaining that people rarely drink tap water. On 28 May 2007, hours before facing questioning in the Diet (parliament), he committed suicide by hanging in his Tokyo apartment and died in Keio University hospital in Tokyo. Norihiko Akagi was appointed his successor on 1 June after provisional Minister Masatoshi Wakabayashi.


In 2006, then prime minister Shinzō Abe appointed Matsuoka as the Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries. He worked on some political issues such as Free Trade Agreements with Australia and the beef import problem with the United States. Matsuoka received much attention when he announced a plan to make certifications for Japanese food restaurants outside Japan. He got this idea from the Denominazione di origine controllata system in Italy and hoped that this might distinguish pseudo-Japanese food restaurants from genuine ones. Many foreign media criticized this system as inappropriate, and named the system "sushi police." He retracted his plan and made a more moderate proposal.


After graduation, Matsuoka joined the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries. In 1990, he resigned as the spokesman of the Forestry Agency and ran for the Kumamoto first constituency in the parliamentary election. He won this election and later joined the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP). Matsuoka was a member of the political faction headed by Shizuka Kamei in LDP. Kamei was one of the fiercest opponents of the postal privatisation bills proposed by then prime minister Junichiro Koizumi, and Kamei and most of his faction defected from the LDP in 2005. Matsuoka stood with Koizumi, and after the general election he was appointed as a member of the special committee for the privatisation of the postal system.
