In general Chiba-shi’s (Chiba clan) Castle is called Inohana Castle or Chiba Castle. Chiba Castle was Chiba-shi’s base castle until he moved his base to Motosakura Castle.

In addition it is said that Satomi-shi (Satomi clan) built it to put more pressure on Motosakura Castle which was the base of Chiba-shi during the Sengoku period. Chiba-shi started to decline after getting more pressure from Kazusano-kuni’s Satomi-shi at the beginning of the Sengoku period.
