Tanabe was destroyed because the shogunate allowed only one castle per one domain. However, after Takatomo died, his heir succeeded Miyazu Domain with 75000 kokus estate, his second son succeeded Tanabe Domain (Maizuru Domain) with 35000 kokus estate, and his third son succeeded MIneyama Domain with 13000 kokus estate.

Then, Tanabe Castle was repaired. In the 8th year of the Kanbun period (1668), the Kyogoku family was transferred to Toyooka Domain. Alternately, the Makino family became the head. Its reign lasted until the end of the Edo period.
