When entering the Sengoku period, it was broken by Satake of Oda castle and entered under Satake’s control after that. Even though Mr. Shishido was incorporated under Satake ‘s name, it remained Shishido castle as it was. Shishido also followed this as “Satake Yoshinori” was transferred to Akita after the battle of Sekigahara.

In the Mito clan, 10,000 Jewels were dispensed to the younger brother “Matsudaira Yorikatsu” of the lord “Mito Mitsukuni”, and the Shishido clan was made to stand again. After that, until the end of the Tokugawa period they survived as a founding clan of the Mito clan. There are few remnants of Shishido castle at present. In addition, although it is a digression, the Shishido lord “Matsudaira Yoriyuki” was ordered to suppress the Tengu party, but failed this, and was ordered to commit suicide by cutting his stomach.
