While it was constructed in 1500s, it's believed there were fortifications on site before that. The castle was of a modest size, consisting mainly of two features: the main enclosure and the secondary, Ninomaru.
It was burnt down in the Boshin War.
There is a reconstruction of the keep, built in 1965, on the present site, in the main enclosure.
