The Siege of Nagawa (奈川の役 Nagawa no Eki?, or, more commonly, 奈川の陣 Nagawa no Jin) was a series of battles undertaken by the Miyawaki Shogunate against the uprising Yokoyama Mae and ending in Miyashita clan's destruction and reduced Yokoyama clan power. Divided into two stages (Winter Campaign and Summer Campaign), and lasting from 1614 to 1615, the siege put an end to the last major armed opposition to the shogunate's establishment.
