Beiwan fought Shurigawa with help from the Principality of Lomellina and Republic of Koya. The Shikaeshi War was the largest micronational East Asian war in the 21st century. The war was the result of the Imperialist Beiwanese policy aiming to dominate Shurigawa politically and militarily.

Course of the war
Shurigawa's illegal claim of Pipa Island
Before the war started, Shurigawa illegally claimed Pipa Island from Beiwan. Robert Zhang (Beiwanese Prime Minister until 3 September 2014) ordered imperial troops from Beiwan to retake Pipa Island, Shurigawan generals were arrested by the Beiwanese government.
Attack on Kogajajima
As a revenge, Robert Zhang ordered the Imperial Military from Beiwan to invade Kogajajima, this course caused the beginning of the Shikaeshi War. Emperor Liu-kuang addressed to the Greater Beiwanese Empire with a speech on the declaration of war on Shurigawa. On Kogajajima there was not one soldier securing the island, Kogajajima was then ceded to Beiwan.
Surrender of Shurigawa
On 6 July 2014, Shurigawan Empress Yukie ordered to surrender to the Imperial Beiwanese Military. Two days later, Empress Yukie was forced to abdicate but she was allowed to live in the Imperial Castle. By order of the Beiwanese Emperor, the Imperial Castle of Shurigawa was forbidden for Beiwanese troops to enter. Shurigawa was ceded to the Greater Beiwanese Empire as the Occupation of Shurigawa, with the former Beiwanese Prime Minister Robert Zhang as Shurigawa's first governor.

During the war, Beiwanese propaganda took various forms, including pictures. Beiwan also placed significant emphasis on atrocity propaganda as a way of mobilizing public opinion against Shurigawa. Many of Beiwanese propaganda uses words and pictures that are horrifically offensive, morbid, sick and upsetting towards Shurigawa and Okinoshima. The Beiwanese citizens where made to treat Shurigawan or Okinoshiman citizens unfair by the Beiwanese government. Teachers, doctors, shopkeepers or any public services where forced to refuse to serve, teach, help or socialize with citizens from Shurigawa or Okinoshima otherwise being arrested and accused for being a traitor. Other than offensive propaganda towards Shurigawa and Okinoshima, there also has been propaganda that advertise recruitment for the Beiwanese Army, Navy and Air Force.
