Hino castle was started to be built in 1533 by Sadahide Gamo (grandfather of Ujisato Gamo). Gamo-shi used to serve Rokkaku-shi in Omi, but in 1568, the Rokkaku family’s Kannonji Castle was destroyed in a day when Nobunaga Oda’s Joraku troops attacked them.

At that time, Sadahide and Katahide barricaded themselves in Hino castle to prepare for the attack of the Oda troops. Nobunaga did not attack Hino castle by force, and he sent Tomomori Kanbe, who was a relative of the Gamo family, to persuade them. Sadahide and Katahide gave in and handed Katahide’s nephew, Tsuruchiyomaru (Gamo-shi), as a hostage, serving Nobunaga.

Tsuruchiyomaru became Nobunaga’s favorite, and he became Eboshi Oya himself, and made his second daughter the wife of Tsuyuchiyomaru. On the other hand, Ujisato Gamo gained experience as a warrior under Nobunaga.
