From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Eikyū (永久 ?) was a Japanese era name (年号, nengō, ?, lit. "year name") after Ten'ei and before Gen'ei. This period spanned the years from 1113 through 1118. The reigning emperor was Emperor Toba-tennō (鳥羽天皇 ?).[1]


Change of Era

  • January 20, 1113 Eikyū gannen (永久元年 ?): The new era name was created to mark an event or series of events. The previous era ended and the new one commenced in Ten'ei 4, on the thirteenth day of the seventh month of 1113.[2]

Events of the Eikyū Era

  • 1113 (Eikyū 1, 4th month): Fujiwara Tadasane was named kampaku.[3]
  • 1113 (Eikyū 1, 4th month): Emperor Toba visited the Matsunoo Shrine and the Kitano Tenman-gū. When the emperor visits Shinto shrines, it is always a pleasure party for him. Without this pretext, court etiquette would not have permitted him to have left the palace.[3]
  • 1113 (Eikyū 1, 10th month): Toba visited the temples on Mount Hiei in the vicinity of Kyoto.[3]
  • 1113 (Eikyū 1, 11th month ): Toba visited the Inari Shrine and the Gion Shrine.[3]
