|History||Yamana Nobumichi built Tottori Castle in 1545. The castle is well known for a famous attack that took place in 1581 when Hideyoshi laid siege to the castle for 200 days. After exhausting their supplies, Kikkawa Tsuneie, lord of the castle, gave up on the condition that his soldier's lives be spared. Miyabe Keijun took over the castle at this point, but was replaced by Ikeda Nagayoshi after the Battle of Sekigahara. Ikeda expanded or rebuilt much of the castle..|
