In the Warring States period, it became a modern style castle. Osumi Province barely survived the Warring States period although it is sandwiched by the Satsuma Shimazu family in the south and the Hyuga Ito family in the north. However, in the 1st year of the Tensho period (1573), when Kimotsuki Knetsugu was the head, Kimotsuki Castle was attacked by the Shimazu family and he lost the castle.

The Kimotsukifamily resisted for some time, but in the 2nd year of the Tensho period (1574), the 19th head Kimotsuki Kanemori finally followed the Shimazu family. Although he didn’t lose his territory then, in the 8th year of the Tensho period (1581), he was transferred to another area. The castle was destroyed at that time.
