Chōkō-ji (長興寺?) was a temple captured by Oda Nobunaga from the Rokkaku clan. The Rokkaku tried to take it back in 1570 by cutting off the water supply and placing it under siege. Shibata Katsuie, the commander entrusted with defending the temple, led his forces in sallying out of the temple to face the besiegers, succeeding in the end.
