It is said that the Jinya was refurbished by the fifth leader of the domain [Kinoshita Toshisada] during the period from Kanmon 2 year (1662) to Enpo 7 year (1679) as a full-fledged Jinya town. There were four children of the first generation of [Kinoshita Iesada], the eldest son [Katsutoshi] accepted 62000 stones at Obama Clan, Wakasa Country; the second son [Toshifusa] had 30000 stones at Takahama, Wakasa Country; the third son [Nobutoshi] was the leader of Himeji Castle; and the youngest brother [Hideaki (Kobayakawa Hideyaki)] was adopted by Mr. Kobayakawa.

Keicho 5 year (1600), in the battle of Sekigahara, both brothers were divided into West Army and East Army and fought. Katsutoshi escaped from the defense of Fushimi Castle and Obama fell; the second son [Toshifusa] belonged to the West Army, he helped East Army [Maeda Toshinaga] when attacking Daisho Temple and got demoted later. The third son [Nobutoshi] belonged to the East Army all the time and was given 30000 stones of Hiji Castle later.

On the other hand, [Kinoshita Iesada] survived the family because he kept neutral without belonging to either the West or the East Army. Those brothers who lost their territory escaped to the Ashimori which belonged to the father, but they conflicted with each other at the family inheritance after the death of Iesada. As a result, Kinoshita family was taken by someone else.

After that, since Kinoshita Toshifusa belonged to [Tokugawa Ieyasu] at [Osakano Jin] in Keicho 19 year (1614), he won the battle in Genwa 2 year (1616) and received 25000 stones. He entered Ashimori for the award and the family influence was rebuilt. The land of Ashimori was governed by Mr. Kinoshita, and Meiji Restoration entered at the era of the 11th leader of the domain [Toshiyuki].
