Kumegawa-no-tatakai (Battle on the Kume River) is the battle between Nitta Yoshisada and the Kamakura Shogunate that occurred on the Kume River (present-day Higashi-Murayama City) in 1333 (the third year of Genkō). In this battle, Nitta's army placed its headquarters on the top of Hachikoku-yama, a hill on the border of Saitama Prefecture and Tokyo. The Kume River became famous as a monument of Nitta's fight against the Kamakura Shogunate.
