|History||The Tamura Clan founded this castle around 1504. Toyotomi Hideyoshi dispossessed the Tamura Clan later in the Senoku Period and the territory came under the control of Gamo Ujisato, who controlled Aizu. After the Tokugawa Shogunate was established Katō Yoshiaki in Aizu, and in 1627 he split of Miharu Domain for his younger brother, Katō Akitoki, but the next year there was a peasant uprising and so Matsumoto Nagatsuna, ruler of Nihonmatsu, took control. In 1644 Akita Akisue was installed as castellan and the Akita Clan governed until the Meiji Restoration.|
