It was a fortress constructed by Yamana Tokiuji (山名時氏), a commander of the Nanboku-chō Period (1336 to 1392) when the Northern Court, supported by Shogun Ashikaga Takauji, and the Southern Court, established by Emperor Go-Daigo, confronted each other.

Futagamiyama Castle was the base of the Yamana clan in Inaba Province (modern-day eastern Tottori) in 1350’s until 1466. The Yamana were most influential during the Muromachi Period when they served as shugo (military governors or constables) over eleven provinces. They lost most of their land holdings in the Ōnin War (1467-77) but retained Inaba Province until the end of the Tokugawa reign. Futagamiyama Castle was abandoned after the Battle of Sekigahara in 1600.
