History of Japan

Muromachi period (室町時代 Muromachi jidai?), also known as the Muromachi era, the Ashikaga era, or the Ashikaga period, is a division of Japanese history.[1] The period started in 1333 and ended in 1573.

Ashikaga shogunate[change | edit source]

The years of the Ashikaga shogunate are called the Muromachi period.[2] The name comes from the district of Kyoto in which this series of shoguns had an official home. This home was also known as the Muromachi Palace (室町殿 Muromachi-dono?) or Flower Palace (花の御所 Hana no Gosho?).[1]
