a castle ruled by Minister Noto Hatakeyama; the Oda force and the Uesugi force fought over the castle in Sengoku era

Nanao Castle was a castle built on a mountain by Mitsunori Hatakeyama, Noto minister. It was a small fort at first, and administrative office was located in Fuchu Nanao-shi.

In 1576, Kenshin Uesugi from Ecchu Echigo invaded Noto. Although Nanao Castle withstood for about a year of siege, the castle surrendered due to the fall-out within the Hatakeyama clan. Tsugutsura Cho suggested to keep fighting while waiting for the support troops from the Oda force. Tsugumitsu Yusa and Kagetaka Nukui insisted that they accept a defeat against Kenshin Uesugi.

The Cho family, who sided with Nobunaga Oda, was murdered. The sudden death of Kenshin Uesugi turned the table, and the Oda force won back Nanao Castle. Nagayori Sugaya was appointed as the chief. Afterwards, Toshiie Maeda ruled the land of Noto, and abandoned Nanao Castle due to its inconvenient location.
