Japanese era from 1350 to 1352

Kannō (観応), also sometimes romanized as Kan'ō, was a Japanese era name (年号, nengō, lit. year name) of the Northern Court during the Nanboku-chō period after Jōwa and before Bunna. This period started in February 1350 and ended in September 1352.[1] The emperor in Kyoto was Emperor Sukō (崇光天皇, Sukō-tennō).[2] Sukō's Southern Court rival in Yoshino during this time was Emperor Go-Murakami (後村上天皇, Go-Murakami-tennō).[3]
