Before the siege on Inabayama castle, Nobunaga Oda succeed at ambushing Yoshimoto Imagawa at Okehazama. To expand his territory Nobunaga led siege of Inabayama castle which was being controlled by the Saito clan. Hideyoshi Toyotomi captured the castle for Nobunaga Oda. 
As Inabayama castle was built on top of a mountain two attacks were launched. One involved climbing, the other across the river. Yoshiharu Horio distinguished himself by opening the water gate to his attacking comrades.
