Nagamasa married the Oda Nobunaga’s sister and had a military alliance with Nobunaga. Since Nobunaga attacked Echizen [Asakura Yoshikane], the allied country of Mr. Azai, Nagamasa started against Nobunaga. Since Genki 1 year (1570), he continued fighting with Oda Nobunaga. Therefore, Yokoyama Castle, which located in front of Mr. Azai’s headquarter [Odani Castle], became more and more important. More importantly, Nobunaga occupied Yokoyama Castle and appointed Kinoshita Tokichiro Hideyoshi as the castle guardian.

Hideyoshi appointed Yokoyama Castle as a base and made a strategic plan of Mr. Azai with [Takenaka Hanbei] there. In Tensho 1 year (1573) September, when Mr. Azai was destroyed, Hideyoshi got Azai and Sakata town and built Nagahama Castle there. It is considered that Yokoyama Castle was abandoned around that period.
