Battle of Tatarahama (1569)
|Battle of Tatarahama|
|Part of the Sengoku period|
|forces of Ōtomo Sōrin||forces of Mōri Motonari|
|Commanders and leaders|
The two armies met on the shores of Hakata Bay, at Tatarahama, but were evenly matched, and both retreated.
In order to end the deadlock, the Ōtomo made an alliance with the Amago clan. The Mōri clan's battles with this larger allied force occupied it to such an extent that Yamanaka Yukimori and Amago Katsuhisa, as part of their arrangement with the Ōtomo, were able to take Izumo province, some distance away on Honshū, and that the Mōri became pressured into abandoning Tachibana.
