|Casualties and losses|
The second siege of Takatenjin came only six years after Takeda Katsuyori took the fortress.
This second siege lasted from 1580 until 22 March 1581, and ended with deaths of 680 of Okabe Naganori's garrison.
This was quite an advantageous event for Oda Nobunaga, as it weakened his enemies; the battle of Temmokuzan the following year would come to be known as Takeda Katsuyori's last stand. Nounaga sent Mori Nagahide to capture his fortress and the siege ended within four months.
