|History||Toba Castle was founded in 1594 by Kuki Yoshitaka, a retainer of Toyotomi Hideyoshi. The Kuki clan ruled for three generations until 1633. After the Kuki, Naito Tadashige became lord of the castle and expanded the grounds by adding a second and third bailey. In 1854, the castle was heavily damaged in an earthquake and tsunami. It was not repaired and was abandoned in 1871.|
