Koibuchi Castle was built in the 14th century by the Edo Clan. They later changed their name to the Koibuchi Clan. It seems the site was abandoned before the Edo Period.
Some overgrown embankments can be discerned, hinting at the layout of the castle. Otherwise there is not much to see of the castle but the site is also the location of a 17th century dwelling of a jizamurai family, the Nakasaki. Given the difference in time periods, the dwelling is not linked to the castle. The site also now hosts a shrine, Kashima-jinja.
