Ina Castle is thought to have been constructed by Honda Sadanori in the 1450s. The Triple Hollyhock Tokugawa Mon (crest) is thought to have been derived from the Tachibana crest of the Honda Clan. After the Honda Clan, the Imagawa Clan also controlled the castle. Then the Tokugawa Clan conquered the castle. In 1590 the castle was abandoned with the Tokugawa Ieyasu's relocation to Edo.
