Keichō (慶長?) was a Japanese era name (年号, nengō,?, lit. "year name") after Bunroku and before Genna. This period started in October 1596 and ended in July 1615.[1] During this time, the emperors were Go-Yōzei-tennō (後陽成天皇?)[2] and Go-Mizunoo-tennō (後水尾天皇?).[3]

The nengō Keichō means "Eternal Jubilance"[4] or "Eternal Jubilance".[5]
