For the "Kashō" era which started in 848 -- sometimes romanized as "Kajō", see Kashō (early Heian period).

Kashō (嘉承), also romanized as Kajō,[1] was a Japanese era name (年号,, nengō,, lit. "year name") after Chōji and before Tennin. This period started in April 1106 and ended in August 1108.[2] The reigning emperors were Horikawa-tennō (堀河天皇) and Toba-tennō (鳥羽天皇).[3]

Events of the 12th century Kashō era[change | change source]

  • 3 October 1106 (Kashō 1): Major Shinto shrines were given many petitions which asked for the healing of "evil influences on the Emperor".[4]
  • 9 August 1107 (Kajō 2, 19th day of the 7th month) : In the 21st year of Emperor Horikawa's reign, he died at the age of 29.[5] The succession (senso) was received by his only son. Soon after, Emperor Toba accepted the monarch's role and duties and powers (sokui). This was confirmed in ceremonies.[6]
