The Battle of Mimaomote (三間表の戦い Mimaomote no tatakai?) the Battle of Mimaomote was a battle during the Azuchi-Momoyama period (16th century) of Japan.

The Battle of Mimaomote had been led by Chōsokabe commander Hisatake Chikanobu (久武 親信?)—equipped with 7,000 men—into the province of Iyo on the Shikoku Island, in which he had attacked Doi Kiyoyoshi, the enemy commander. Doi crossed the Mimaomote river to meet Hisatake within a fierce battle on the 21st of May, 1579. Hisatake was eventually defeated and killed, resulting in the victory of Doi Kiyoyoshi.
