In Sengoku Period, the place was called Iwate no Seki, in between Saijo of Dewa and the woods of Shitomae. In 1520’s, Yusakageyu Nobuharu (ancestor of Yusa family in Naruko) of Akumi of Dewa came from Misako of Kurihara. He joined the power of Yuyama family from Myosada and built a small fortress in the current place. After Date Lord took control of the place, it is renamed as Shitomae Sakaime and a guard station was built. It was an important checkpoint managed by Date’s family and other officials. Famous haiku writer Matsuo Basho and his mate Sora visited the historical site in 1889. They also checked by the officials but passed the check station finally.
