The Siege of Toyama was a battle during the Azuchi-Momoyama period (16th century) of Japan.

During the late summer of August 1585, Toyotomi Hideyoshi had led his army of around 100,000 soldiers against Sassa Narimasa, one of his former allies many years back. Within the siege of Toyama, Toyotomi senior commander Maeda Toshiie would elaborate well on his abilities while playing a very prominent role within the overall attack. In the end, however, Narimasa's defense was shattered, thus allowing the Toyotomi supremacy over Etchu province.
