Gamo Ujisato was famous as not only agnert feudal lord but atea master, who was a head of 7 disciplesef SEN Rikyu

When TOYOTOMI Hideyoshi, the Shogun, ordered the death of his head of tea master Rikyu for treason in 1591, GAMO Ujisato invited his 2nd son, Sen Shoan to Aizu in order to protect him, and to continue the Sen family tradition and Rikyu's style of tea ceremony. Then Sen Shhoan built Rinkaku for Gamo Ujisato in the castle ground. After the Boshin Civil war the defeated Aizu Clan moved to Tonami, in the northen-most past of Japan. In 1872 the Morikawas moved Rinkaku down to their land fearing its demolition within the castle and kept it in good condition for 120years.

In 1990, Aizu-Wakamatsu City moved it back to its original place to commemorate the 90th Anniversary of Aizu-Wakamatsu Municipal System.
