In the late Warring States period, the head Kunohe Masazane disagreed with his Nambu Nobunao of the head Nambu family. In the 19th year of the Tensho period (1591), he raised the standard of revolt. (Kunohe Masazane Rebellion)

Nambu Nobunao had a license of the head Nambu family by Toyotomi Hideyoshi, so Masazane’s rebellion was regarded as one’s against Toyotomi government. Hideyoshi assigned Toyotomi Hidetsugu the leader and sent Asano Nagamasa and Gamo Ujisato to suppress it with Nambu Nobunao.

Kunohe Masazane was surrounded by a large army of Toyotomi Hidetsugu. He surrendered for a contract to save his life, but the Kunohe family was completely executed. Hideyoshi ordered Nambu Nobunao to live in Kunohe Castle to suppress the area. He moved from Sannohe Castle and developed the castle town.
