Nanao castle was the chief fortress in [[Noto province]], originally built sometime between [[1394]] and [[1427]] by [[Hatakeyama Mitsuyoshi]], ''[[shugo]]'' of Noto at the time.

In [[1571]], [[Maeda Toshiie]] came to Noto leading the advance guard of [[Oda Nobunaga]]'s forces; he seized the castle and claimed it as his own. Toshiie submitted to the authority of [[Uesugi Kenshin]] following Kenshin's invasion of Noto and the fall of Nanao to his forces; having declared his loyalty to Kenshin, Toshiie was left in control of the castle.

He later moved many of the buildings to the site of [[Komaruyama castle]], but some parts of the stone foundations which remain are believed to have been built during this period of [[Maeda clan|Maeda]] occupation.
