Jōwa (Muromachi period)

Japanese era from 1345 to 1350

Jōwa (貞和) was a Japanese era name (年号, nengō, literally, year name) of the Northern Court during the Nanboku-chō period after Kōei and before Kannō. This period started in October 1345 and ended in February 1350.[1] The pretenders in Kyoto were Emperor Kōmyō (光明天皇, Kōmyō-tennō) and Emperor Sukō (崇光天皇, Sukō Tennō).[2] Their Southern Court rival in Yoshino was Emperor Go-Murakami (後村上天皇, Go-Murakami-tennō).[3]
