Uesugi Kenshin invaded Noto province in the fall of 1577, prompting Oda Nobunaga to dispatch a sizable army to the relief of his allies at Nanao Castle. Kenshin was initially hesitant to face the great host, but before the Oda army arrived, Nanao castle was captured. When Oda Nobunaga learned that Nanao castle had fallen, he began to withdraw his army. However a skillful nighttime feint by Kanshin, suggesting he had divided his forces, led Nobunaga to order Katsuie to charge against the Uesugi lines at the Tedori River. The Oda charge was repulsed due to the current and inferior close-quarter ability of the ashigaru making up the bulk of the Oda army. Having suffered the loss of 1,000 men, Oda Nobunaga withdrew south. This was destined, however, to be Kenshin's last great battle.
