|Emperor of Japan|
Kasuga no Izakawa no sak no e no misasagi (Nara)
Emperor Kaika (開化天皇, Kaika-tennō) is the 9th emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession. Historians consider Emperor Kaika to be a legendary person; and the name Kaika-tennō was created for him posthumously by later generations.
No certain dates can be assigned to the emperor's life or reign. The conventionally accepted names and sequence of the early emperors were not to be confirmed as "traditional" until the reign of Emperor Kammu, who was the 50th monarch of the Yamato dynasty.
