  Battle of Uji (1180) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The first battle of Uji is famous and important for having opened the Genpei War.
In early 1180, Prince Mochihito, the Minamoto Clan's favored claimant to the Imperial Throne, was chased by Taira forces to the Mii-dera, a temple just outside Kyoto.

 Battle of Uji (1221) Information
The third battle at the Uji River was the primary battle of the Jōkyū War in Japan.
As had happened twice before (see Battle of Uji), the bridge over the Uji-gawa proved to be a tactically crucial entryway into Kyoto, and highly defensible; but, as before, it was ultimately not defensible enough and the attackers crossed the river and killed their enemies.
The main battle was at Uji, just outside Kyōto; this was the third battle to be fought there in less than half a century.

However, his cousins caught up with him soon afterwards, following him across the Bridge over the Uji, which he tore up to impair their crossing, in an ironic reversal of the first Battle of the Uji, only four years earlier.
Much as the Taira did four years ago, Minamoto no Yoshitsune led his horsemen across the river, and defeated Yoshinaka, and pursued him away from the capital.

 ospreysamurai.com - Knights and Samurai
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.
