Hōreki (宝暦), also known as Horyaku,[1] was a Japanese era name (年号,, nengō,, lit. "year name") after Kan'en and before Meiwa. The period started in October 1751 and ended in June 1764.[2] During this time, the emperor and emperess were Momozono-tennō (桃園天皇)[3] and Go-Sakuramachi-tennō (後桜町天皇).[4]

The nengō Hōreki means "Valuable Calendar" or "Valuable Almanac".[5] This time frame was created by Emperor Momozono in 1754.

Events of the Hōreki era[change | change source]

The previous era ended in 1751 (Kan'en 4, 27th day of the 10th month); however, this nengō was created years later. By Imperial command, the era was re-named on December 2, 1754, which then became 19th day of the 10th month of the 4th year of Hōreki.[5]
