The second siege of Odawara took place in 1569. After failing to take Hachigata and Takiyama castles, Takeda Shingen nevertheless moved against the Hōjō clan capital fortress of Odawara. The siege lasted only three days, after which the Takeda forces burned the town to the ground and left. Odawara castle itself did not fall and was still held by the Hojo.
