Todo Takatora the greatest castle architect of his day directed the renovations and built Japan's first sotogata style main keep. The castle lasted until the Meiji Period when it was officially decommissioned. The real name of the castle is Kameyama Castle, but it is unofficially called Tanba Kameyama Castle to differentiate it from other castles called Kameyama Castle. Tanba is the old name of this area.|
