Ochi Kunizumi built the original castle 1332. The Ochi controlled the castle until the mid 16th Century, and during this time, it took part in several revolts as an important castle in the area. Takatori Castle was then abandoned by order of [[Oda Nobunaga]] in 1580, when he declared [[Kōriyama Castle]] the ruling castle in the region. [[Tsutsui Junkei]] began reconstruction of the castle in the year 1584, but died shortly after. His heir [[Tsutsui Sadatsugu|Sadatsugu]] was also moved to [[Iga province]] the following year, and rebuilding the castle fell to Honda Tarozaemon with his son Toshitomo. The [[Honda clan]] were lords of the castle until 1640, when [[Uemura Iemasa]] became the new lord. The [[Uemura clan]] then ruled until the Meiji Restoration.
