The Battle of Toba-Fushimi (鳥羽・伏見の戦い,Toba-Fushimi no Tatakai?) was part of the Boshin War, and was named after the area where the allied Chōshū (Kenshin's affiliation), Satsuma and Tosa samurai opposed the Shogunate’s samurai near Fushimi, in the south of Kyoto. It was fought from January 27, 1868 to January 30, 1868, between those still loyal to the by then defunct Tokugawa Bakufu, and the newly instated pro-Imperial forces. It was the site where Kenshin fought Shinsengumi squad captains Okita Sōji and later his rival (later ally) Saitō Hajime. The battle concluded in favor of the Imperial Army, marking the end of the Tokugawa Shogunate.
