Battle of Suriagehara (摺上原の戦い Suriagehara no tatakai?) was a battle during the Azuchi–Momoyama period (16th century) of Japan.

The Battle of Suriagahara served as the aftermath of the Siege of Kurokawa, in which Ashina Yoshihiro with his 16,000 men stole the moment to enact revenge for their previous defeat at Kurokawa Castle. Date Masamune, with his superior 23,000 troops, defeated Yoshihiro after a well fought battle on both sides.
