The 1554 siege of Kannomine was one of many battles fought in Takeda Shingen's campaign to seize control of Shinano province. This took place during Japan's Sengoku period; Shingen was one of many feudal lords (daimyo) who battled to gain land and power.

Kannomine was located in the Ina valley in Japan's Shinano province; it was commanded by Chiku Yoritomo, and was taken just prior to the sieges of Matsuo and Yoshioka.
