Hasedo Castle was an important defensive position for Yamagata Castle. It was probably built sometime in the early 1500's by the Mogami Clan. It first appears in history when it was conquered by Date Tanemune in 1514. In 1600, forces loyal to Tokugawa (led by Mogami Yoshiaki) and forces loyal to the Eastern Army (led by Naoe Kanetsugu) fought at Hasedo Castle at nearly the same time that their armies were fighting at Sekigahara. When news reached Naoe of the outcome of the Battle of Sekigahara, he withdrew back to Yonezawa. It was abandoned in 1622 when the Mogami moved to Omi.
