At the second battle of Uji in 1184 two samurai vied for the honour of being the first to swim his horse across the river and into action, which one won by telling the other that his saddle girth was loose.
The result of these different traditions was that the battle of Cerignola in 1503, where volleys of European arquebuses pierced knightly armour for the first time, was effectively a repeat of the Crécy and Agincourt experience using stronger weapons of offence and defence.
However, the battle of Nagashino in 1575, which was Japan's Cerignola, was far more of a radical change because mounted samurai had never had to contend with any sort of missile volleys.

In 1575, Nobunaga famously broke the power of the Takeda Clan, under Takeda Katsuyori, in the Battle at Nagashino, and, although the Takeda continued to trouble him until their final destruction in 1582, the Nagashino victory, every bit as strategically crucial as Okehazama, strengthened Nobunaga’s political position.
