Siege of Ōtsu
|Siege of Ōtsu|
|Part of the Sengoku period|
forces of Mōri Terumoto
castle garrison loyal to Tokugawa Ieyasu
|Commanders and leaders|
Mōri Terumoto and Tachibana Muneshige laid siege. The sides negotiated and Takatsugu surrendered. However, in the meantime Tokugawa Ieyasu had won the battle of Sekigahara, assuring his control of all Japan, and so the loss of Ōtsu was ultimately insignificant.
