The Battle of Uchidehama (打出浜の戦い, Uchidehama no Tatakai) took place in 1582, near Kyoto, Japan, following the Battle of Yamazaki. The forces of Toyotomi Hideyoshi pursued the defeated Akechi clan to Uchidehama and engaged the clan again there. Akechi Mitsuharu led the Akechi, as his cousin, Mitsuhide, died at Yamazaki. Hori Hidemasa led the Toyotomi forces at Uchidehama, and defeated Akechi Mitsuharu.
