The siege of the castle was personally led by Ōuchi Yoshitaka against Gassantoda Castle located within Izumo Province, under the control of Amago Haruhisa. After a long, hard-fought siege, Haruhisa ended in victory. Yoshitaka, who had failed in his attempt, withdrew to Yamaguchi, in which he indulged himself with "more and more in pleasures", until he was deposed by his retainer, Sue Harukata, in the Tainei-ji incident.[1]
