In the Warring States period, the Ijuin family, which was a senior statesman of the Shimazu family, approached Toyotomi Hideyoshi and received Miyakono Castle with 80000 kokus estate as a lord. The area was important to rule Miyakonojo Basin.

In the 4th year of the Keicho period (1599), Shimazu Tadatsune assassinated Ijuin Tadamune for his selfish behavior. Then, Tadamune’s heir Tadamasa raised the standard of revolt to the Shimazu family. He was besieged in Miyakono Castle for a long time. (Shonai War)

Finally, he made peace with the Shimazu family. However, after that, he and his family were killed. After the Ijuin family got extinct, the Hongo family became the head of Miyakono Castle again. In the 1st year of the Gen’na period (1615), it was destroyed because the shogunate restricted one domain to own only one castle.
