The 1582 in Japanmarker, also known as the Battle of Toriibata, is regarded as the last stand of the Takeda family. This was the final attempt by Takeda Katsuyori to resist the combined forces of Tokugawa Ieyasu and Oda Nobunaga, who had been campaigning against him for some time.

In his bid to hide from his pursuers, Katsuyori burned his castle at Shinpuj┼Ź and fled into the mountains, to another Takeda stronghold, called Iwadono, and held by Oyamada Nobushige, an old Takeda retainer. Katsuyori was denied entry by Oyamada, and committed suicide while his army held off their pursuers.
