This castle was estimated to be constructed by the Itami Clan in the Nanboku-chō period. In 1574, Araki Murashige expanded the castle, and it became one of the biggest castles in this region. This castle fell to Oda Nobunaga in 1579. This castle was abolished by Ikeda Motosuke, a major general under Nobunaga.
According to Turnbull, the castle was captured "by digging a long tunnel from outside the walls to a spot near to the castle's keep."
